Change Food Fest 2016 - Listen to How the APM Food Buying Club Uses the PWPM to Address Food Insecurity

Posted: December 19, 2016

Angel Rodriguez, VP of Community Economic Development (CED) for Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha (APM), shares how a conversation with a single mom helped bring food to a community. In Philadelphia, where Angel’s team works, nearly half the population is food insecure. When they were asked what they wanted, the answer was obvious, the highest quality food at the lowest prices. APM worked with the community to create a buying club to address the food insecurity issues and to help parents get food on the table.
