The Sandwich: Sustaining, Portable, Nutritious.
And thanks to donors like you, FREE for America's nearly 50 million food insecure. This means over 16 million children live in a household that struggles to provide the food necessary for an active, healthy lifestyle. And without adequate nutrition, these children often perform worse in school, limiting their future opportunities and perpetuating the vicious cycle of poverty.
Food banks, once thought to only provide for the homeless or step in during emergencies, help bridge this gap. In many cases, they're the only thing helping poor, working families make ends meet.
GreaterGood.org partners with Northwest Harvest to launch Operation Sandwich to fight back against hunger. GreaterGood staff and other local volunteers will prepare sandwiches every week for the homeless and working poor. Then, as the program grows, we'll roll it out to food banks across the country.
As simple as they may seem, sandwiches provide an easy, cost-effective way to craft complete and ready-to-eat meals that are also handheld and portable, meaning they travel well to school or work where prohibitive prices often mean missed meals. Sandwiches are also nutritious, and for some homeless, it might be the only meal of the day.
Northwest Harvest provides nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger. Their vision is ample nutritious food available to everyone in Washington State.
