News & Notes from Trish, Hope for the Journey Home Coordinator
Hope for the Journey Home is part of a new video from a Second Harvest food rescue program called Meal Connect. General Mills produced the video to be used with school lunch programs who will join the Meal Connect program this fall. Helping to pilot this new program has reduced our food budget by bringing food to HJH from restaurants who value organic food and packaging, impacting healthy food choices for those serving people who struggle with food insecurity. This opportunity has also exposed our guests to foods we would not normally have access to, such as hummus, guacamole, papaya, and bottled beverages.
