Our Work | FAMILY ECONOMIC MOBILITY
It Takes More than Food To End Hunger
We can’t permanently end childhood hunger in the United States without addressing the root causes.
Many families in this country face enormous barriers. Systemic racism and social injustice mean fewer opportunities for financial security, especially for Black and Latino Americans and other people of color, as well as those who live in rural areas.
We’re helping families become financially stable by providing grants and support to organizations across the country that are tackling these underlying issues, as well as working on legislation that protects and advances the economic interests of working people.
The long-term goal of our family economic mobility work is to transform systems so single mothers achieve financial stability for themselves and their children.
In pursuit of this goal, we are committed to achieving three outcomes:
We will work to increase federal and state resources for single mothers and their children facing food insecurity.
Continue our efforts to increase durable income and wages for single mothers and dismantle structural barriers to reduce costs associated with accessing nutritious foods.
Begin engagement with, and inclusion of, diverse stakeholders to advance single-mother household food security and economic mobility.
