Summary

Poor and homeless women don't wonder What will I have for lunch today? Instead, they ask themselves, Will I eat today? Serving a nutritious breakfast every weekday and lunch and dinner every day, and offering assistance with groceries--the Food Programs at Rosie's Place provide critical healthy meals and groceries to thousands of poor and homeless women and their children each year.

Challenge

For poor and homeless women--sacrifice and suffering is routine. When it comes to paying for necessities such as rent, utilities, food or medication, it's not a matter of when or how much. It's a question of which one. Which one can I make do without? And more often than not, hunger is endured in order to stay housed or to pay a utility bill.

Solution

Serving a nutritious breakfast every weekday and lunch and dinner every day to up to 300 women and their children, and offering assistance with groceries to 1,800 women each month--the Food Programs at Rosie's Place provide critical nutritional and financial supplements--to thousands of poor and homeless women and their children each year.

Long-Term Impact

Our welcoming Dining Room serves tasty and nourishing meals-365 days a year-to about 300 women and their children each day. This year, we anticipate serving more than 100,000 nutritionally balanced meals. Because many of our guests work during our Dining Room's meal times and/or have families who are hungry too, we offer Rosie's Place Groceries. Through this program, we welcome an average of 1,800 women each month into our pantry to "shop" among our shelves, choosing their own groceries.
