Challenge

The current SNAP program does not provide enough for Seniors and those in need of assistance. The SNAP Program renews on a monthly basis often times leaving families in a precarious situation towards the end of the month when groceries are running low. The lack of food security is a stress multiplier in families that are already experiencing hardship.

Solution

By providing a consistent option to supplement groceries on a monthly basis. By partnering with both governmental and non-governmental organizations we can extend or food distribution to Seniors and homebound individuals. Operation toward the end of the month food will be distributed to those in need. Individuals not in the SNAP program will be assisted by our case mangers for assistance with the government program and an assessment of other unmet needs.

Long-Term Impact

The Long term impact to reduce hunger on our island and improve the overall situation of those experiencing economic hardships. Our initial goal is to distribute groceries to at least 50 families on island per month.
