“Going Beyond Emergency Food: A Guide for Providers” helps organizations move beyond emergency services so that they can provide the education and skills needed to help them increase community food security and reduce poverty in their area.
Many food banks, soup kitchens, and food pantries face a daily struggle in getting enough food to address the growing needs of their communities. Emergency food providers also know the situations and events that force people to seek food at their organizations: the loss of a job, a lack of access to nutritious food, low education levels, health problems, and many other challenges. At WhyHunger, we hear from providers who want to work with their program participants to address those issues, but do not have the tools to improve their services.
Going beyond Emergency Food: A Guide for Providers helps organizations move beyond emergency services so that they can provide the education and skills needed to address hunger and poverty issues. This guide will help you increase community food security and reduce poverty in your area. Increasing community food security means ensuring access to affordable nutritious food for all people at all times.
