Feeding the Body
Food insecurity has a ripple effect in our community, with an impact that is felt well beyond the person experiencing the pangs of hunger. A hungry child is more susceptible to illness, misses more school and learns at a slower pace. Increased illness and mental lethargy or distraction due to hunger impact the entire classroom and in the end all students are affected.
For six years, we have distributed supplemental groceries to Lake Highlands residents in need. We provide 15-20 pounds of healthy food per person monthly. We provide rolling carts to help our members transport their groceries as many recipients walk to the monthly food distribution. Through our partnership with the Lake Highlands YMCA, we also offer classes for pre-diabetic children.
