Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Hunger and poverty will always be with us, and our goal is to create the most efficient system to address these needs in the lower Florida Keys.

Create efficiencies by utilizing primarily volunteers to deliver services as well as securing donated food that would otherwise go to waste through a organized system of food recovery.

Tremendous refrigeration and storage capacity as well as transportation capacity of large amounts of donated food seven days per week.

By securing more healthy fresh produce and vegetables instead of the normal high fat, high sodium, canned goods usually distributed by food pantries we will increase the overall health of those we serve while at the same time addressing our nationwide problem of obesity.

With three refrigerated trucks on the road we secure tens of thousands of pounds of donated food each week. All of this food would've otherwise gone to waste even though it is still healthy and nutritious if consumed quickly.
