Challenge

Food insecurity creates an often insurmountable burden for families. As a family's resources are dedicated to the daily search for food, education and health often suffer, thereby creating a cycle of poverty and food insecurity for generations to come.

Solution

By providing food kits the Cuenca Soup Kitchen decreases food insecurity, improves health, and gives families the ability to improve their futures. Each applicant is screened and monitored by a social worker. All children must attend school. As applicants reach stability they are transitioned out of the program and families from our waiting list are brought in.

Long-Term Impact

Reducing food insecurity positively impacts health both in the shot and in the long term. It diminishes child malnutrition. It also provides opportunity for a better future as families can focus on education, increasing employment opportunities, and earning ability. These are positive impacts for families as well as for the community.
