Crossroads distributes food directly to those who need it at our in-house food pantry
At Crossroads Community Services, each person who comes to our pantry has the opportunity to leave with fresh and nutritious food.
A Registered Dietitian with thirty years of experience helped us develop the Crossroads Nutrition-Based Food Selection System–an algorithm in our client database that helps match the kinds and amounts of food received to the age, gender, and activity level of each household member as recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA). Our approach is unique according to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Our system calculates the amounts of fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains, and dairy needed to provide the foundation for the preparation of 21 balanced meals for each family member.
Using this method of distribution, we get the RIGHT AMOUNTS of the RIGHT FOODS to the RIGHT PEOPLE.
On average, a family of four receives 100 pounds of groceries when they visit Crossroads pantry or one of our CDP sites. In 2018 Crossroads distributed 2.25 million pounds of food to approximately 12,000 unduplicated individuals, which translates into roughly 1,900,000 meals and a market value savings to our clients of $4.6 million.
