Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We have seen an increased need for food and personal protective equipment since the start of the COVID pandemic. We continually seek funding to be able to increase our distribution and to continue to provide food and other resources to anyone in need. We need to expand our hours and adapt our distribution model, as well as find additional food sources to meet this need. We have seen a particular shortage in fresh foods.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to be able to meet the increasing need for food. We have seen a significant increase in the number of food insecure families. We work very hard to continue to provide nutritious options to our most vulnerable neighbors.

We consistenly work with local stores and organizations to minimize food waste and ensure that anyone in need has access to healthy food options regardless of their background, ethnicity or financial status.

Through a concentrated effort we have successfully modified two shipping conainers to serve as food storage. To meet our current goals we have formed a great partnership with our community and are working together to expand our resources. In addition, we are planning a major event for the spring to bring in funds.

We have already put the plans in place for our fundraiser; food, music, volunteers, permits etc are all secured. We have aprtnered with the town on a food drive for February. We have added additional volunteers to pick up fresh produce for us as well as other food items so we can increase our capacity to serve.

Data
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
