The mission of
Food for the Soul
is to stop food waste and eliminate hunger by creating access to nutritional food for people experiencing food insecurity.
Since our founding in 2020, Food for the Soul (FFTS) has experienced incredible growth and impacted those we serve in ways we could not have imagined. Organically grown out of a global pandemic, FFTS was an innovation the leadership of the Sisters of the Community of the Transfiguration, who unanimously voted to realign the resources of the Transfiguration Spiritual Center kitchen staff to meet the needs of those experiencing hunger and food scarcity.
What an incredible journey it has been! FFTS has become an essential part of the community, providing food distribution through hot meals, pantry boxes and monthly self-select food pantries. We also partner in healthy nutrition education offerings through our cooking classes and events. Through partnerships forged with local and non-profit organizations, FFTS rescued approximately 65,000 pounds of food in our first year - and another 109,000 pounds of food in our second year.
. . . and we are just getting started!
