Healthy Eats for Healthy Families
Our organization has been helping people in the Grande Prairie area for 6 years with the basic needs of everyday life. Clothing, furniture, diapers, formula, and most importantly, healthy food options. We believe that everyone deserves the dignity of quality nutrition and fresh food options. It's well documented that when the struggle of food poverty is eliminated, people are better able to see ways to improve their lives rather than focus on surviving.
We currently operate purely by donations from neighbors and, while amazing, we often end up back logged with requests which results in people waiting 2+ weeks for food. We would like to help reduce that wait.
Who Will it Benefit?
Everyone. Reducing food poverty helps to better situations for those struggling and they in turn are able to focus on bettering their own lives, reducing the strain on other social programs.
