Food & Nutrition

Catholic Charities is committed to ensuring access to proper nutrition via healthy options at food banks, pantries and community farms. CCUSA supports our Catholic Charities agencies both through advocacy and education; assisting our network to take full advantage of food support programs and grant opportunities.

WHY WE DO IT

We are committed to supporting each person's nutritional needs
    • A household that is food insecure has limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy life.
    • Children are more likely to face food insecurity than any other group in the United States.
    • The coronavirus pandemic has left millions of families without stable employment. More than 50 million people, including 17 million children, may experience food insecurity in 2020.
