Food $en$e is designed to increase self-sufficiency by helping individuals stretch their food dollars. Food Bank is able to purchase food items in large quantities at discounted prices, and this savings is passed on to the program's customers. Food Bank operates this service with more than 40 sites in a 14 county area.
Monthly Food $en$e packages are created by the Food Bank and a newsletter is generated and distributed to each site coordinator. The coordinators are responsible for taking orders from customers, placing the order to the Food Bank and distributing the packages on a specific date. The monthly newsletter includes information for the coordinators, the current month's Food $en$e package, the projected package for the following month, and recipes using food items from the unit. A food package contains 10-12 items, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, and staple food items.
Anyone wishing to stretch their food dollars can participate. The cost of the package is $15.50 and participants pre-pay with cash or EBT card. Food $en$e packages are available to participants at the end of each month.
