Summer VISTA:Hunger Relief-Ruth/Norman Rales Jewish Family
Recognizing the unacceptable consequences of local hunger, United Way of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, backed by 183 local organizations, convened the Hunger Relief Project and identified the need to create a comprehensive plan to reduce local hunger. Our project addresses hunger in our community, improving access to nutritious food for Palm Beach County residents.
The project is focused on community empowerment using sustainable solutions to alleviate hunger. One Summer VISTA member will work in partnership with Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services. Further help on this page can be found by clicking here.
