“Nourish To Flourish Continues Support Of Local Businesses and Community Members”
About the Nourish to Flourish Initiative
With almost 40 million jobs lost in the U.S. in just two months, housing is at risk and food insecurity has skyrocketed. But, like in most crisis situations, there are often silver linings. As the lockdown took effect in Salt Lake City, a small group of people from Sentry Financial, the Lightspark Foundation, and Pulp Lifestyle Kitchen began a conversation about how to address food insecurity while simultaneously supporting the restaurant industry. That conversation quickly evolved into an action plan for The Nourish to Flourish Initiative, which consists of three pillars: restaurants preparing food, organizations serving under-resourced groups, and community members providing funding.
