FAQ’s About Our Meal Program
What is a food desert?
A food desert is an area where residents face limited access to affordable and nutritious food, often lacking nearby grocery stores or supermarkets. This can lead to reliance on unhealthy convenience stores or fast food outlets, contributing to diet-related health problems and disparities in public health.
How does providing meals help families?
Providing meals to families offers crucial support by ensuring access to essential nutrients, alleviating financial burdens, and saving time. These meals can strengthen family bonds, promote emotional well-being, and enhance communication through shared dining experiences. Additionally, they contribute to food security, ensuring families have a consistent source of nourishment, which is especially important for those facing economic or health-related challenges.
How does the meal program work?
The LV Reach food program is a commendable initiative dedicated to ensuring that all its students and their families receive a nutritious dinner every day. This program not only addresses the immediate need for sustenance but also contributes significantly to the overall well-being of the community. By prioritizing access to evening meals, LV Reach not only supports the students’ physical health but also eases the financial burdens of their families, allowing them to allocate resources to other essential needs. Furthermore, it fosters a sense of inclusivity, care, and unity within the community, emphasizing the importance of communal support and reinforcing the idea that no one should go to bed hungry.
How do you indentify people who receive services? Who's provided meals?
We extend these services to all of our students and their families, recognizing the profound impact of shared meals in strengthening family ties and fortifying food security within our community.
