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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our goal is to alleviate hunger and aid in the elevation of individuals and families from poverty. We work to strategically supply food to our entire area with a focus on the most at risk. -We are working to cover our entire region with accessible resources. -We hope to foster a collaborative environment for all of our partners to work in. -We strive to elevate the nutritional content of diets of persons with food insecurity with fresh, low fat, low sodium options.

By organizing our agency approvals by areas of need and helping them to grow we are expanding the reach we have.

We are able to purchase, transport and organize food on a commercial level, thus ensuring free or very low cost availability to the agencies. We have commercial refrigerated trucks and warehousing as well as processors who are able to rescue salvage product for redistribution.

We have made significant impact in the fight against hunger in our area. We monitor clients and watch both chronic and intervention numbers. Students are performing better, we are on boarding new pantries in places where new need has developed and we are closing out pantries where the need no longer exists.

Since 2013 we have supplied 14 million pounds of nutritious food to the community. Every year 3 million pounds of supplies are distributed to assist those people facing food insecurity. We currently serve 17,300 people through our partners, but are looking to be a resource for all 24,000 as determined by the ALICE Report.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
