Check out this podcast interview “Caring for each other during COVID-19” about the Grandview Woodland Food Connection COVID Emergency Food Delivery Program. We are in the last third segment. This interview nicely summarizes our program and the problem with the charity food sector. Community members should never have to ask for free food because they are hungry or lacking healthy food. While we are heartened to see the outpouring of support that we have received and all the food activists that have stepped up to help and we plan to keep the program running as long as possible (depending on funding) through COVID, we certainly do not want to institutionalize the program. We need systems change not charity.
