The mission of WHEAT is to educate, advocate, engage and empower individuals to action in the fight against hunger and poverty.
WHEAT: educates through workshops, civic speaking, leadership training and key note presentations; advocates through active participation within the legislative process, both locally and nationally; engages and empowers individuals caught in the poverty trap to self sustenance through their own participation in the anti-hunger campaign and by inspiring others to volunteer toward an end to hunger.
The Clothes Silo, a clothing boutique empowering disadvantaged women through the provision of free workwear. The Fair Trade Store, fighting global poverty with fair and ethically traded gifts and goods. WHEAT’s Management Training, providing skill building workshops and on-the-job training throughout the Phoenix area.
At this time, I was in my Bachelor's at Arizona State University and as my final project I had to be apart of an Organization that was making a difference in the world. I enjoyed learning what WHEAT stands for and how they help individuals but also help prepare and train individuals for interview and job training. I am now thinking back I enjoyed doing being apart of this company, why not do it again! :-)
