To Local Restaurants
Few, if any, industries have been harder hit by the pandemic than the restaurant industry. It has culminated in not only lost profits and livelihoods for owners, but lost jobs for employees. The Nourish to Flourish Initiative provides restaurants with a consistent guaranteed demand for meals every day, week in week out.
Food insecurity impacts 11.5% of Utahns, or more than 350,000 people in our state. The Nourish to Flourish Initiative is designed to help address this by empowering nutritionally-conscious restaurants to provide fresh, healthy meals to buttress those staples currently being provided by existing providers.
By scaling the Nourish to Flourish Initiative, we can eliminate food insecurity in our community. And if we can do it in Salt Lake City, our success will be replicated by other communities across the country. Community funding, however, is a critical component of making this vision a reality.
