The Food Share Network works together to contribute to the enhanced health of people and local communities in the Capital Region. We believe that no one should go without access to fresh, local, nutritious food.
To us food security is not only about access to food, but it is about having the resources to access the food you want, when you want it, without compromising nutrition or other essential needs.
Our focus is on enhancing food security by supporting the foundations that reduce the number of people that do not have reliable and consistent access to nutritious, culturally relevant food. We are working towards this goal by strengthening community links and supporting access to resources that support self-sufficiency.
Food Resources in the Capital Region
The COVID-19 crisis has impacted many individuals and families across the Capital Region. Many non-profit organizations have stepped up to provide food services to those in need during this time (and beyond). Many of these organizations were already operating before the crisis, and some of these services have begun operating more recently.
The Food Share Network is maintaining a list of Food Services in the Capital region. You can access that list below to learn about food services that are available.
