Mission Statement

Leah's Pantry, Inc. empowers homeless and low-income families and individuals to make positive changes in their diet through interactive nutrition and cooking workshops held at housing sites and service agencies throughout California. All people, regardless of life circumstance, deserve to know how to nourish their bodies in a way that respects their income level, educational background, ethnicity, and age. Healthy eating is en vogue; local, organic, whole foods - these concepts are all over our media. But to many low income individuals and families, these ideals seem out of reach. They are too expensive and time consuming for those who must focus on finding stable housing and steady jobs. I don't believe that healthy eating is reserved for the rich, but I certainly understand why that perception exists our society. Leah's Pantry shows people of all backgrounds how to set and achieve realistic and attainable goals relating to their diet and nutrition. Diet affects sleep, work, concentration, and achievement. Families and individuals who battle homelessness and poverty struggle to purchase, prepare, and feed themselves and their families. They also lack the time to strategize or reflect about their food choices. Leah's Pantry workshops provides that time. We ask that participants analyze their food choices, decide how they'd like to change them, and then participate in exercises, demonstrations and discussions that empower them to make those changes. Combined with simple recipes, taste tests, and plenty of food to bring home, we've created a program that works.
