CCJ maintains a client-centered focus in order to ensure its activities in the community and its responses to the evolving faces of poverty remain relevant. Open Door as well as a number of CCJ special projects acknowledge the role of food and nutrition in poverty relief. We know that individuals and families experiencing poverty have diminished access to whole nutritious foods for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, Maslow’s hierarchy has been used to label nutrition and food quality bourgeois concerns irrelevant to the hungry and homeless. This is a grave injustice, one that compounds the health problems of the most vulnerable among us. Credible research suggests that food and nutrition can be used to improve and, in some cases reverse, a variety of debilitating health conditions. These health conditions are that much harder on people experiencing poverty. Parenting, sobriety, navigating relationships, seeking employment and housing become even more difficult. By serving as fiscal sponsor for this project, CCJ asserts that advances in our understanding of health and wellness shall not be the purview of the privileged. Health belongs to everyone.
