We couldn’t feel more fortunate to work with people & organizations who use the power of healthy food to nourish the communities around them, ultimately helping them to thrive.

And among our inspiring partners is Leah’s Pantry – a California-based nonprofit committed to a vision of all people being nourished, regardless of socioeconomic status.

“Our mission is pretty simple: It’s to support organizations, individuals and families and give them the resources and skills that they need to build well-nourished communities and a healthy and equitable food system,” said Leah Quinn, NPP Project Coordinator at Leah’s Pantry, when we had a virtual chat with her to learn more about their program.

As the coordinator of Leah’s Pantry’s Nutrition Pantry Program (or NPP), Leah sees first-hand how food & nutrition security can play a major role in building resilience in children and adults in low-income communities. And the passion she has for supporting her pantry volunteers, so they can provide the best possible experience for their clients at each and every visit is so clear.
