Understanding Food Insecurity
Food insecurity refers to the lack of access to sufficient and nutritious food due to various socio-economic factors. It is a widespread issue affecting millions of individuals and families around the world. Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank is dedicated to addressing this pressing problem within our community.
