The Outreach Market is an innovative market style food distribution system which will serve hundreds of people weekly with food, diapers and household items as well as targeted educational components. The Outreach Market will distribute "Outreach Dollars" to each family receiving food, according to their household size.
The household representative will be able to go through the Outreach Market and choose the grocery items they need for their family, checking out at the end similar to a grocery store environment. Using the latest POS system available, trainees in our Workforce Development program will ring customers up and take their Outreach Dollars in exchange for grocery items. Single parent households, working poor with children, and senior citizens will be primarily served with each type of family coming in on a different day. This allows us to provide targeted educational programs that will be required for each families receiving items from the Outreach Market (parenting, avoiding fraud, etc.).
