Foodshare Partners with Village for Families and Children
Manchester – With resources from its “Partnership Program”, Foodshare has partnered with Village for Families and Children (VFC) to help purchase a variety of kitchen equipment to support their Shelter for Women (SFW) – Alison Gill Lodge residential program.
VFC/SFW – Alison Gill Lodge is a level 2 therapeutic group home. Alison Gill Lodge is specifically designed to treat girls and women who have suffered from abuse, neglect or violence. Their mission is to make sustainable progress towards recovery and independence by providing clinical, residential and educational support.
In addition to this recent collaboration, Foodshare provided 2,441 pounds of food to Villiage for Families and Children’s Alison Gill Lodge in the past year to support its work to feed those individuals participating in the residential program.
Foodshare’s “Partnership Program” was created by the organization’s Board of Directors to expand the work of Foodshare’s local food pantry, community kitchen, and shelter partners in areas critical to Foodshare’s goal of ending hunger in the region. Funds to support this partnership come in part from the annual Walk Against Hunger, from which Foodshare sets aside 5% of all donations for this purpose.
