Nourishing Neighbors currently provides healthy produce and pantry staples for 115 families every week, with more than 2,800 boxes totalling roughly 35,000 pounds of food donated so far this year. These numbers speak to the power that we have when we come together as a community and give more than we take, but there’s much more that we can still do.
By donating to Nourishing Neighbors, you can make a direct impact on our food system, and help us build relationships that will create a resilient, thriving community. There are several ways to support Nourishing Neighbors, from donating a single box to sponsoring a family (or several) for a year. Our goal is to increase the number of families we serve per week to 150 by the end of 2021. In 2022, we hope that we can reach 200 families in need, as well provide scholarships for field trips, summer camps, after school programming and more.
These are ambitious goals, but we’ve seen what this community is capable of, and how we can rise to meet any challenge when we work together. We appreciate all of your support, and look forward to working together to build a more equitable food system for all.
