Taste of Home: What's on my plate
Chicagoans are partial to their hot dogs and New Yorkers claim their pizza is the best. Food has always played a critical role in our communities. We gather with our families, friends, and neighbors over a meal for a multitude of reasons, and we spend countless hours thinking about what we want to eat next—but how often think about what dinner looks like for our global neighbors living in poverty?

It is inspiring to see what a difference a small increase in monthly income can make for a family’s nutrition. It gives me a tangible reminder of the importance of partnering with our clients on their journey out of poverty.
