"Winning the War Against Hunger Project"
The Empowerment Center engages in other services to the neediest members of society which include the Winning the War Against Hunger Project (WWAHP). The purpose of this project is to provide food to the working poor, needy families, senior citizens and individuals, some of whom are homeless.
This is accomplished through our distribution network to other organizations externally, and through our food bank internally. The program is operated by a 100% volunteer staff who are encouraged to take free groceries home every time they serve. As many as 85 individuals each year who are unemployed, under employed, and disabled secure work and/or job upgrades through the work experience and training that they gain from their volunteer experience in The Food Distribution Program (FDP). Through this program many individuals have been empowered to reverse the cycle of poverty and become self sufficient contributors to the community! Each year the need is intensifying and we need help from the community to reduce the number of hungry children and starving individuals who struggle with hunger.
WWAHP is totally funded by donations from individuals and our partner nonprofit organizations who receive food donations for their feeding programs. At full funding we have the capacity to divert good wholesome food away from the sanitary landfill to the table of more than 700 families per week through our network of community based nonprofit organizations.
Please give serious consideration to supporting the future efforts of The WWAHP, by becoming a financial partner on a one time or monthly basis.
