Constant Change: Food Justice

We have been advocating for food justice and public health equality for a while! Now that we have a physical space (see below) we are calling on the community to help us fill our outdoor, ventilated communal food pantry! Providing quick and easy access to an array of food items. This rain-resistant food pantry is just one of our expansion efforts.

We’re even hosting a giveaway for a Mindful Moments with Mo Mother’s Day Basket for anyone who can donate to our pantry this week!

New Roots

We spoke with Fresh Stop Market Manager Mr. Juan and New Roots Founder Karen Moskowitz about their upcoming Fresh Stops! There are several Fresh Stop locations in Louisville like the one at the California Community Center and Dr. William G. Weathers Senior House. Families who receive additional governmental assistance such as SNAP and WIC may purchase shares ($40 worth of fresh food) for as low as $12/month!

We’re also increasing our Sunday Dinner impact from 60 to 100 meals!
