United Way Calls Together Emergency Food Ad Hoc Committee

Food insecurity unfortunately impacts our community everyday, leaving many families having to choose between paying for food, rent or utilities. To that end, UWGN convened an Emergency Food Ad Hoc Committee made up of community stakeholders to identify emergency food needs and resources in our community. Charged with recommending the most effective way to impact the region, the Ad Hoc committee asked UWGNH to partner with representatives from food pantries and soup kitchens in the Dixwell, Newhallville and Highwood neighborhoods around ways to build the organizational capacity of emergency food providers in order to improve access to food. Representatives from the Ministry of Helps Foundation, St. Martin De Porres, God’s Miracle Unlimited Outreach Ministry, Community Soup Kitchen, Varick Church, St. Andrew’s Food Pantry, Village of Power, Glorified Deliverance Center Church and Love Center Deliverance Ministry came together on October 6, 2008 at the Varick Church to begin discussions of how best to ensure that all families in our region are food secure.
