And We’re Off!
Off to the races to make a difference in the lives of thousands, even millions! We are Food + Outreach Centers of America, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides a way to distribute unsaleable product to tackle the issue of hunger and go beyond to address the root causes of hunger and poverty. Our unique model focuses on a holistic approach to hunger, setting us apart from traditional food programs. Food isn’t our main focus, getting people’s lives back on track is. As an organization, we provide a hand-up to those facing poverty, not a hand-out. A common misconception we fight is the belief that poverty occurs because of bad choices. We believe that more often than not, falling into poverty is a result of variables out of one’s control. Food + Outreach Centers of America is here to put that power back into the hands of the poor. By providing those in poverty the tools and resources necessary to break the cycle, they may finally get the break they need to refocus their efforts on getting back on track.
