Food Access Project is composed of volunteers from immigrant communities and others, which can implement and oversee activities designed to improve access of immigrant populations and others to BOL services and volunteer opportunities.

The purpose of Food Access Project

I. Implement activities to improve access:

  • do targeted outreach to immigrant communities to:

1) assess barriers to food access

2) identify nutritional needs and food preferences

3) promote awareness of BOL food programs

  • identify barriers of immigrant communities to accessing BOL services so these barriers can be addressed
  • provide interpreting services for the large percentage of patrons of our food programs who are not proficient in English
  • provide food resource information in languages spoken by the immigrant communities

II. Implement activities to provide nutritious & culturally-appropriate foods:

  • survey the patrons of our food programs to assess how those programs are meeting their needs and what changes would be needed in order to better meet their needs
  • solicit donations of foods or products identified as needs by immigrant communities
  • communicate identified food needs and preferences of immigrant populations
