We’re doing something a little different this month, folks. Morningstar Relief Mission is celebrating #nutritionmonth 2021 with Making Ends Meat, a social media education and awareness campaign to share budget-minded tips and resources to benefit individuals and families struggling with the increasing cost of food.
The economic impact of the pandemic continues to put people in our community at heightened risk of food insecurity. And while there is nothing Morningstar can do about the rising cost of food, we can showcase the experience of our cooking team, and the skills they use every day, to kickstart a hopeful, practical, conversation with our community about healthy eating on a budget.
The kitchen table means different things to different people. And for an increasing number it is a stressful place that symbolizes the struggle to make ends meet. As we continue to hope and pray for better social conditions, and more livable wages, Morningstar’s focus is on compassionate response in the present.
Every week we feed hundreds of people across Lennox & Addington County. This month we are putting the knowledge and expertise that helps us do that on the social media menu to benefit hundreds more.
So, stay tuned!
