Happy Monday! Today’s Grantee Monday is about one of our recent Hunger and Homeless grantees, NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, Inc.! Open Your Heart provided NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, Inc. with funding for a new reach-in freezer and food scale to be able to store, distribute, and weigh more food for those in need, while cutting down on wait times for food shelf clients.
NorthPoint is a community-based nonprofit that provides a broad range of human services that meet basic needs and help individuals and families get on a path to greater health and self-reliance. NorthPoint’s most utilized human service is their community food shelf, which serves an average of 65 households a day; providing fresh, healthy, and culturally appropriate foods to individuals and families in need. In 2019, they served 2,328 households and 5,740 individuals, a 25% increase over 2018. Thank you NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, Inc. for all that you do for families and individuals in need.
