HACAP Food Reservoir
2 year commitment
Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.
HACAP will receive support from PHA to implement a comprehensive nutrition ranking system over the next two years. PHA will provide technical assistance to help HACAP understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.
We are HACAP - a community action agency that is helping people develop skills to become successful and build strong communities. HACAP serves 72,000 individuals yearly spanning across 45 initiatives including the HACAP Food Reservoir, a program that is at the heart of HACAP. The Food Reservoir distributes healthy, wholesome foods to seven counties and 150 partner agencies, mobile food pantries, senior totes, backpack programs and more!

Low-income people are at increased risk for both food insecurity and obesity
