CAPITAL REGION FOOD SHARE NETWORK
Collaborating for a food-secure region
AT A GLANCE
Creating an appetite for change in our community
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.
WHAT WE DO
Community. Capacity Building. Connection.
Increasing the supply of healthy food made available to member agencies for distribution.
Improving educational tools and metrics related to food security.
Advancing advocacy for food security funding and policy change.
Food Share Network membership is open to all non-profit agencies working towards food security in the Capital Region.
To apply for membership, agencies are asked to send a letter of application to be reviewed by the Food Share Network's Board of Directors. Be sure your letter includes:
A description of how your organization aligns with the mission, vision, and values of the Food Share Network;
A statement indicating that you support the Food Share Network's guiding principles;
How any food received through the Food Rescue Program would be used to support vulnerable individuals who are food insecure and would benefit from greater access to fresh produce.
