Description

Executive Summary

Ease A Common Hunger, Inc. (EACH)

America is the land of opportunity; it is also the land of plenty. This means that Americans also have plenty of the issues we don’t need; like hunger. For one of every eight Americans, hunger is very real. Many people believe that hunger is confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods; the reality is much different. Every day, millions of Americans struggle with hunger. These are hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and go without food for several meals, or even days.

Our Specific Purpose - EACH is a not for profit corporation whose primary focus is creating new and assisting current non-denominational, in-house food closets. EACH will work with employees and employers to create in-house food closets so that co-workers who are able can help co-workers that are in need, and do so within their own, immediate community. These small, in-house food closets are complimentary to larger established food closets, not in competition with them. EACH will focus on making basic food staples available to those in need, where they work, doing so with discretion and dignity.

Activities - The lack of a non-profit status effectively limits small, in-house food closets to small donations of food and money. EACH has been created to aid smaller food closets that are too small or lack the leadership to deal with non-profit issues, especially since non-profit status is needed for recurring sources of donations of food and cash. EACH will work with the small, in-house food closet to get them as self reliant as possible. This could be done done through recycling for cash or recurring food drives. As the number of in-house food closets increases, EACH will coordinate with other food closets to move food from one closet to another as needs and food supplies dictate.

Funding - EACH will examine many avenues of funding. EACH is not a deep pockets corporation. The corporation is dependent on volunteers. The volunteers do what they can to help make a difference where they are. Funding sources are likely to include: email solicitation; recycling for cash; donations of food and or cash from for-profit corporations. EACH will work with other non-profit organizations similarly missioned to identify donors. Donations to EACH will be distributed to one or more food closets as needs dictate and funding allows.
