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.
Our History: In the summer of 2015, various hunger fighting organizations, led by Transition Durham, teamed up to present four End Hunger Action Forums attended by food activists, advocates, program participants, and concerned citizens. We continued to develop programs under the name End Hunger Durham.
What we do:
Maintain and publish an updated directory of DurhamFood Pantries
Build Capacity of Front-Line Workers through 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.
