Eliminating Hunger in Northeast Florida

Student: Kristin Gonzalez

Community Partner: Feeding North East Florida

Food insecurity is generally defined as not having easy access to a grocery store or supermarket with fresh food and produce. The mission for working with Feeding NorthEast Florida is to give back to our community and help eliminate food insecurity in Jacksonville, one of the ways that Feeding NorthEast Florida does this is through the Mobile Corner Market. The Mobile Corner Market is a mobile truck that is located in different locations in order to implement this mission statement. The Mobile Corner Market offers a place for those in need to have an entire shopping experience, with a personal shopper. The goal of the Mobile Corner Market is to improve the quality of life of Northeast Florida by addressing food insecurity by providing nutritious foods & other essential goods to those in need as well as find solutions to address the issues of food insecurity and poverty through awareness, advocacy, education, and action in ways that promote dignity, respect, and empowerment.
