Opportunity Council - MFN - Network Communications VISTA
MFN uses food as an attraction and intersect where people can connect to resources and opportunities to improve their lives and break the bonds of poverty and inequality. Miracle Food Network (MFN)is not a food bank, food pantry, or emergency food handout organization, but rather an accelerator of economic and social mobility for disadvantaged people. MFN has close working relationships with Public Schools, educators, and other community nonprofits targeting the “working poor” families identified principally by their eligibility for Free & Reduced Lunch (FRL). The “working poor” FRL families are too often left out of consideration for social service benefits, as their income levels place them outside of the qualification zone set by policy makers. MFN’s VISTA project will target connecting with those families, reducing food insecurity stresses, and sharing resources they were unaware were available to them. A full time qualified VISTA member will allow MFN to refine and implement processes to improve communications and data processing to increase efficiencies and capacity.
