Who We Are
If you were hungry and without food for you and your family, would you know where to get food? This is the question that drives the mission of Nourishing Networks. We started our organization in 2012 as a passion to mobilize people to address basic human needs in their communities. Every network we establish attends to the immediate needs of their area by joining forces with other organizations, services, and local leaders to increase awareness for those in need of nourishment. We work to make our impact in various ways including:
We help individuals and families who are facing food insecurity to find local and regional food resources., and we help people who have food and resources to get them to the people in need.
We support volunteers who are passionate about helping people experiencing food insecurity by providing a framework for them to innovate, organize projects, raise funds, and become visible and impactful to the community.
We assist projects with fundraising campaigns, grant applications, and other efforts to provide funds to purchase food and meet other expenses to create a direct impact on communities.
We strengthen our communities by bringing everyone to the table to address food issues, expand and reinforce the safety net so we leave nobody behind., and increase resilience and capacity to face other challenges.
