Foodbank of Santa Barbara County WHAT WE DO - Going straight from hunger to health is quite a leap. It requires jumping over that place of ‘I have enough calories, but the food I am eating is making me unhealthy.’ It’s a leap to a much better place.
Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s mission is to end hunger and transform the health of Santa Barbara County through good nutrition.
The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County is committed to taking a negative thing – hunger – and through our combined community efforts transforming it into a positive thing – health. This leap forward in health is achieved with three ingredients: food, education, and empowerment. The challenges of Hunger, Nutrition, and Obesity used to be separate areas dealt with by different approaches and by different agencies and groups. The Foodbank is now tackling all three of these problems at once – through a nationally recognized continuum of programs that provide cradle to graduation intervention in children’s lives.
