Imagine trying to get the food you need to live a healthy lifestyle without any way to get to a grocery store. This is the reality so many in our communities face.
“It’s not just food; it’s nourishment,” Mr. Richard said. “OneGenAway is bringing life.”
Ms. Patty brightened up our first day of beta-testing our new home-delivery program: The Doorstep Pantry.
If you’ve driven through our Mobile Pantry, chances are you’ve met Tori. Tori is our Communications Manager, and when she’s not hiding behind a camera, she’s out making friends with our neighbors who come to us to receive food.
When you come to our Mobile Pantry regularly, you notice when a person keeps showing up. In Waverly, Steve is one of those people.
OneGenAway is excited to partner with Feed My Starving Children for a combined Mobile Pantry and MobilePack event that will feed families both locally and internationally on Saturday, Sept. 24.
“We are here to love those who come to us, to serve them, and make them feel important,” said Adrienne Pelletier, our Florida Intern (and soon-to-be Florida Manager).
Food insecurity and mental health struggles are separate, but sometimes, they can overlap. OneGenAway focuses on food, so we want to point our community towards other resources that may help with some of the other struggles we face when our household food supply is threatened.
Disordered eating is not a popular topic of conversation. It’s weighty. It’s difficult. Sometimes painful. All the more reason to talk about it.
You have probably noticed something is going on with the global food supply. How is this impacting OneGenAway?
