Using Food to Strengthen Training and Employment Programs
For many of the neighbors we serve, the path out of food insecurity involves finding stable, and better yet, thriving employment.
That’s why Harvesters is partnering with local workforce development organizations to help participants move out of hunger and towards greater economic opportunities.
How We’re Doing It
It’s hard to focus when you’re hungry. It’s even harder to climb the career ladder when you’re struggling with ongoing food insecurity. We provide food to local workforce development organizations to help support participants as they seek to acquire new skills, find job placement opportunities and work towards better economic opportunities.
