The collateral consequences of incarceration include being partially or entirely banned from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program). The LOHM addresses the critical needs of families affected by incarceration so that they can look beyond mere survival towards lives of creative expression, entrepreneurship, and thriving futures. Food insecurity is a significant driver of stress and trauma in people’s lives.

OUR PARTNERSHIP

Our program in partnership with our philanthropic partner Instacart connects national and local grocery stores to donate to families impacted by incarceration.

Often, this is high-quality, fresh organic produce that people in low-income neighborhoods cannot readily access. Natural, non-processed food options have been proven to have positive effects on physical health, but also to support mental health when it comes to reducing anxiety and depression.

APP DEVELOPMENT

While we continue to use a rather innovative Google Voice service to coordinate our volunteers, pickups, and deliveries, we are now actively working with Instacart to co-develop an app that allows their shoppers to quickly notify our team of available groceries and to get those groceries to our participating families. This new app could radically scale AFP and spread it across to all markets served by Instacart.

OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19

For the last six months, we have worked through our Angel Foods Delivery Program (AFP) to help families address one of their most pressing issues and significant drivers of stress and trauma in their lives. Food insecurity is a significant driver of stress and trauma in people’s lives. Since the start of COVID-19, The LOHM has provided groceries and other emergency items to as many people as possible. Even now, administrative and executive staff continue to pitch in by packing bags and making deliveries.
