"To interrupt, intercept, intercede, convert, and distribute food surplus and waste to transform and impact lives in communities that face hunger, poverty and other life altering crises."
WHAT WE DO
Miracle Food Network (MFN) supports communities fighting hunger and poverty through safe haven support, meals and nutrition, labor force development, and other services.
MFN takes a holistic approach to restoring communities. We start with meeting basic needs like food and shelter. Beyond survival basics, MFN builds job opportunities for people whether underemployed, unemployed, or unemployable. We help people challenge their dependencies so they can stabilize their lives and households. MFN links human resources to local needs and beyond.
We empower individuals faced with hunger and poverty to lead healthier, more productive lives overcoming their cycles of dependency.
HOW WE DO IT
Miracle Food Network (MFN) serves communities that welcome us. Working with Sustainable Connections in Bellingham Washington, MFN volunteers run daily routes to collect surplus food from area commercial kitchens. The daily collection of food is then aggregated at an underutilized church kitchen and repackaged into "grab & go" type containers that are then delivered the same day to strategic distribution points in the local area. Our primary focus is on serving the families identified as eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch assistance in nearby school districts.
We utilize the support of community members and the resources they provide to attack hunger at one of its root causes: poverty. We continue to actively serve our community helping people heal, restore, and revitalize themselves and their families.
MFN’s goal: share our model and lessons learned with rural under-served communities. MFN is committed to help more front line fighters combat hunger and poverty at its source across the U.S.. We are determined to make a difference where it counts.
