We're excited to have launched Neighborfood Express!
Through this new free food distribution program, we deliver healthy meals and groceries weekly to residents living in various food insecure neighborhoods, as well as connect them with partner agencies who can assist them with such issues as employment, housing, addiction recovery, and mental health advocacy - all in an effort to tackle the root causes of food insecurity.
Since we officially launched Neighborfood Express on November 21, 2020, the program has had a tremendous impact in the lives of the kids and families we've served. To date, we've distributed hundreds of free meals, thousands of pounds of free groceries, and dozens of free kids books.
In addition to delivering free meals and groceries, we've successfully connected dozens of individuals to our partner agencies in the Community Empowerment Coalition, for help with employment, housing, mental health, and other support services. In so doing, we strive to meet every possible need the kids and families we serve may have, beyond the lack of access to healthy food.
