Help Fight Food Insecurity!
CES staff and volunteers are the top of a very large pyramid of support. We can’t combat food insecurity without businesses, foundations, groups, churches and individuals volunteering and giving food and funds.
US Department of Agriculture defines food security as "Access by all people at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life." Conversely, food insecurity means that "consistent access to food is limited by lack of money and other resources” (Economic Research Service, 2016).
At CES we see lack of transportation, poor health, limited mobility, isolation and mental health difficulties as factors that contribute to food insecurity. We combat these factors by delivering lunch through Meals on Wheels or groceries with our Home Delivery program, asking volunteers to give a listening ear to Food Shelf visitors and giving access to fresh produce and breads weekly through Bonus Fridays.
Please help us make food the least of people's concerns. Help us reach our community.
