Food is an expression of value and trust and allows us to extend a helping hand to those in crisis, which is the beginning of our work. We use food to strengthen our community by creating positive solutions for stability. Our programs work to eliminate hunger from many angles. Our childhood hunger programs like Power Pack and Kids Cafe work with schools and community organizations to ensure children have food beyond the school day.
In addition to providing food, we connect clients with many programs and services aimed at furthering their self-reliance. We offer referrals to our own programs focused on housing, social services and job assistance, and can connect those in need with our network of social services organizations to ensure they get the support they need.
Our programs go beyond the individuals whom we serve. Through our Mayerson Capacity Development Center, we provide opportunities for member agencies to grow and better serve their own communities.
