Alleviate Poverty

Poverty is at the root of hunger.  Hungry families and individuals cannot afford the quantity or quality of food they need.  Combating poverty is a key initiative that will help the fight against hunger.

Thoughtful employment practices can go far in ensuring hungry people get enough to eat.  Intentionally seeking to hire at-risk populations (e.g. homeless) provides opportunities to those who struggle.  Providing a responsible wage and benefits package to employees helps those already working meet their cost of living.
