Food insecurity is a topic that needs a lot more attention than it’s currently getting. According to V.M Salgoacar Colloge of law the right to food is recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948, as part of the right to an adequate standard of living. Right to Food is classified into two components – the right to adequate food and fundamental right to be free from hunger. In Ohio 1,547,110 people are facing hunger and of them 448,600 are children. People facing hunger in Ohio are estimated to report needing $757,327,000 more per year to meet their food needs as stated by Feeding America As Paul Prudhomme stated, “ You do not need a silver fork to eat good food”. No one should go to bed on an empty stomach hence the relentless effort Inprem puts in to bridge the hunger gap.
Inprem Holistic Community Resource Center has constantly been putting in the work five days a week, and on the third Saturday of every month for almost seven years now in an effort to provide food for families in Ohio. Inprem offers a daily walk-in pantry service with no appointments and no zip code restrictions. A drive- through strategy was adopted during the pandemic as food is an essential need and this style of service delivery has come to stay.
