EDUCATION & ENGAGEMENTS programs.

our recipe for change

  1. Support people with lived experience of poverty and marginalization to build skills and confidence and create opportunities for them to become peer advocates and help community members access the support they need

  2. Encourage volunteerism among program participants and prioritize leadership opportunities

  3. Create ways for people to take action and have a voice on the issues that affect them. Never lose sight of the role government in addressing food insecurity and poverty, diet-related illness, and our unsustainable food system at scale.
