WHO is Nourish to Flourish?
A group of concerned community leaders
started meeting in April 2018 to understand
the hunger issue on San Juan Island where:
39% of children are on free or reduced school lunches
68% of low-resource individuals said they skipped
meals and 14% said they had gone hungry
And where fruits and vegetables are:
40% higher compared to U.S. National averages.
These concerned citizens continue to meet with community leaders from the County Health Department, the school district, Food Bank, Food CO-OP and Farmer's Market to develop initiatives to end hunger on San Juan Island. There are no administrative fees and every donation (through the Family Resource Center) is 100% for food purchases, resources, information, and education.
