The Mission takes a multi-faceted approach to reducing hunger and the threat of hunger in western Washington County.
We know different populations experience different obstacles to obtaining enough food. The challenges a third-grader faces are not the same as those encountered by an 80-year old. Our food programs go beyond simply delivering quality food.
Each program promotes social interactions, builds a sense of community, and encourages learning about nutrition, trying new foods, making healthy food choices, talking about food, and nutrition. We hope to impact area residents’ eating habits, including the next generation’s habits, in order to create a stronger, healthier, and more informed community.
