Millions of Americans face food insecurity, which impacts numerous aspects of an individual’s life, including physical and mental health, academic performance, and future economic productivity.
WHAT is food insecurity? Lacking access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life and often no guarantee of the next meal.

The number of people in Rockland County requiring additional healthy food is growing at alarming levels! 14.4% of Rockland County residents survive at poverty level,
