Hunger is not just about food. Hunger is inseparably germane to a nexus of issues, including: among other things - climate change. As an organization committed to growth through learning, we pay close attention to these issues. In order to end hunger, it is imperative for us all to be 1) conscientious about conservation, 2) respect the environment and ecosystem, and 3) know and appreciate our ever-changing world.
OUR GOAL: To end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture for everybody,, but especially for the most isolated and vulnerable.
THE CHALLENGE: Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) are the most severely impacted by insufficient food access, diet-related illness, and other issues directly related to food insecurity and the supply chain. Today, the most isolated and vulnerable people in the U.S. are more likely than their privileged counterparts to live under the conditions of food apartheid, with limited access to fresh fruit or vegetables. They are less likely to be able to access fertile ground to produce crops and more likely to live in carcinogenic areas without clean water or air.
OUR STRATEGY: Meet the immediate food needs of the most isolated and vulnerable populations.
