S+ Catalyst: United Against Poverty
0 min read
United Against Poverty (UP) seeks to help the chronically impoverished transform their lives by providing highly subsidized groceries, crisis care, and opportunities for education and employment. Recognizing that getting food on the table is a top priority for families, UP works to sustainably address hunger and poverty with a grocery share and supportive programming. Their food service allows families who are at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty line gain access to groceries at less than 35 percent the price of traditional grocery stores. UP also offers wrap-around services to help initiate a path to economic self-sufficiency. Clients can receive assistance to assess their emotional, financial, and educational needs. Available classes include money management, nutrition, employment skills, computer literacy, and healthy relationships.
