Dharma Initiative: PlateShare
Food banks are understaffed and underfunded, and food drives alone won’t end the problem. Random assortments of donated food require time and resources to sort and distribute. Plus, these foods often provide little nutritional value to those in need of a hearty meal.
What these food banks need is money. Food banks can buy in bulk at serious discounts, meaning their dollar at wholesale retailers goes much further than yours at the grocery store. Aid workers can foster relationships with local farmers, simultaneously supporting the local economy.
PlateShare aims to assist established hunger relief organizations in their mission to feed every hungry person by crowdsourcing what they need: money to buy food.
Join us each Sunday at 5:15 pm for a donation-based Y2 Remix class. All proceeds will benefit PlateShare.
