The Market

We call our Food Pantry 'The Market' because it looks like any Metropolitan Market. We want to change the narrative for our customers by providing a grocery-store choice model. We want the experience to be easy, dignified, and welcoming.  Customers can choose from a variety of  nutritional food that includes fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and nonperishable staples.

Why Food is Important

Hungry children struggle in school, have behavioral and/or emotional issues, more absenteeism, and poorer overall health.

 

Hungry adults can suffer from a variety of health issues, including high blood pressure or diabetes. Many parents feel guilt and shame from not being able to provide for their family, and the stress of trying to decide between their economic challenges.....should I eat or pay rent?
