Clearing a path to food security

 

 

End Hunger Durham envisions a unified and just food system where

healthy food is available to everyone.

Our Mission:  to support food relief agencies, and those in need of food, with reliable information, collaborations, and advocacy aimed at ending hunger and malnutrition.

Our Values:  We believe that everyone should have access to adequate amounts of nutritious food and be equipped with the knowledge and tools to live a healthy life. We assert that access to healthy food is a human right.

What we do. 

Maintain and publish an updated directory of DurhamFood Pantries 

Build Capacity of Front-Line Workersthrough our Food and More Program:mini-grants, workshops, and trainings for pantry operators on nutrition education, information and referral, gardening, and best practices.

Offer information and referral services to those facing food insecurity:  Our Information Station connects low-income families with the resources they need to lower their risk of food insecurity.

Advocate for policies that strengthen the social safety net.

Promote networking and communication among food security actors by hosting forums and networking events, sending a monthly e-newsletter, and supporting networking initiatives on related issues.

Focus on vulnerable populations—especially older adults:  EHD directs food and other resources to older adults living in subsidized apartment complexes and leads initiatives in networking, programs, research, and advocacy for their improved nutrition and health.
