Orgs team up to distribute local emergency food aid

To address food insecurity, nonprofit AdkAction has teamed up with Hub on the Hill commercial kitchen/local food distributor to put together emergency food packages (EFP) with a week’s worth of locally produced food and ready-to-eat meals.

Each EFP contains eggs, bread, apples, healthy snacks, yogurt, greens, granola, soup, and two large trays of frozen entrees. The food distributed is purchased from local farms, and prepared and delivered by local labor provided by Hub on the Hill. Families and individuals in need are being screened by partner agencies and local organizations with a history of supporting those who need food.

The plan is to give out 1,000 food boxes over 10 weeks. As of today, the effort met its $55,000 goal needed to fund the project. More info: https://www.adkaction.org/project/emergency-food-packages/
