The Hunger Project

Not Accepting Applicants

CFHE's THE Hunger (THP) Project is a weekly meal delivery program for individuals experiencing food insecurity. THP outsources the production of all meals to local community eateries and restaurants that create dinner meal boxes for our residents. Our meals are described as a "hug in a box" composed of wholesome, hearty, and nutritious ingredients. Our meal program delivers fresh, warm meals to our senior population, homeless residents, and persons with disabilities.

We address health and hunger issues in low-income and predominantly minority communities that are most commonly affected by a lack of healthy food options, unaffordability of healthy foods, and comprehensive wellness services.
