Homeless youth do not get enough healthy food to eat. They are often preoccupied with basic needs of survival, such as personal safety, ways to earn money, and access to other basic amenities we take for granted. When homeless youth to have good, it can often be ‘junk food’ consisting of empty calories and little nutritional value. Homeless youth have increased food insecurity because they lack the ability to buy healthy food or cook consistent meals.
Malnourishment perpetuates the cycle of youth homelessness because lack of proper nutrition can lead to severe and chronic medical issues, physical deficiencies, and mental health problems. Malnutrition can also lead to the decline of cognitive function making it even harder for homeless youth to make and maintain good decisions, thus continuing the path into adult homelessnes
It is not always easy for homeless youth to coordinate food with other survival needs, which can make access even more difficult when it comes to scheduled programs. Our program offers meals directly to youths who might otherwise be eating out of a trash bin. One of the most powerful steps you can take is by becoming a part of our Food Network.
