One of the most damaging roadblocks to seeking food resource is the stigma and shame that occurs in the process. Sometimes people silently suffer just so they don’t have to experience this. Shame leaves an imprint that can last a lifetime. We know this. So what is preventing us from trying to change this?
Restoration Market is daring to imagine the possibility of eliminating this stigma and believes that no child in our community needs to experience shame due to hunger. With innovation and a dignity forward approach, we are actively changing the narrative of food insecurity in real time. This project is about food justice vs food charity.
A gift to Restoration Market helps us advance our mission of providing equitable access to nutritious food, with dignity, to those in the community facing food insecurity.
