Food Insufficiency Is Real and Painful - Meals for Moms Can Help Make A Difference- No Family Should Suffer With Food Insecurity

 

 

 

\

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Food insufficiency was assessed with the question, “Does your family ever run out of food before the end of the month?” Women who responded “yes” were then asked what they do when they run out of food before the end of the month. Response choices included: borrow food or money from family or friends, use a food bank, go to a soup kitchen, we go without, and other. Women who responded “yes,” they run out of food before the end of the month or indicated they use one or more of the mentioned methods to obtain food were considered to report food insufficiency. Women who responded “no,” they do not run out of food before the end of the month and did not indicate that they use any of the mentioned methods to obtain food were considered to report no food insufficiency. The term food insufficiency was chosen as established measures of food insecurity such as the U.S. Household Food Security Survey module capture additional facets of this basic need including the nutritional quality of the food.

Saffron Trust Women’s Foundation is an organization that works to improve the mental and physical health of underserved women, mothers-to-be, and mothers. Saffron Trust Women’s Foundation:

  • Collaborates and builds partnerships
  • Addresses material hardships & the association linked to food insufficiency and   maternal depressive symptoms  
  • Addresses health outcomes associated with social determinants of health
  • Advocates for individuals
  • Brings women together – and partners with Businesses that want to be a blessing to these families
  • Works to reduce social and economic disparities to positively change life outcomes for women.

We work to educate and to build strong community networks for women. We do this by collaborating with businesses that would like to open their arms and provide blessings to those single mothers that may be less fortunate.

As part of being a single mother, the “Allostatic load” (a condition known as severe emotional stress) means that spending a few dollars on a meal for an occasion may not be possible.  The simple pleasure of enjoying a meal can mean the world to the family’s health in many ways.

We are asking local restaurants and/or individual donors to partner with Saffron Trust Women’s Foundation during 2019 with:

  • Restaurants - Gifts of 5-10 meal allowances by coupon to the families we serve.
  • Individuals - Financial donation to restaurants that have partnered with Saffron Trust Women’s Foundation to support the meal donations.
