22 Jun BTWCSC & Partners Serve the Community
Since the pandemic, Booker T. Washington Community Service Center remained steadfast and deliberate when it came to providing food security for its community. Over the last nine months, we have fed over 94 families Monday through Friday with our neighboring community partners. Chris Shelton the Director of Operations was instrumental in partnering with several local food distributors who cared for the community and made sure food security was given to all our community neighbors and homeless population. For us to truly understand the magnitude of what BTWCSC delivered it important to understand the meaning of food security Food insecurity – often rooted in poverty – decreases the ability of countries to develop their agricultural markets and economies. Access to quality, nutritious food is fundamental to human existence. Secure access to food can produce wide-ranging positive impacts, including: … Increased global security and stability. According to the FAO, in a definition established at the World Food Summit (WFS) in Rome in 1996, food security is achieved when everyone has physical, social, and economic access at all times to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. BTWCSC would like to highlight our community partners during these times and thank them for continuing to serve our community as we seek light at the end of the tunnel. They recognize that this is far from over and have continued their partnership hand in hand with us. Today we want to SAY THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE WITH US.
