Food Insecurity is not just about the quantity of food people have access to, but the nutritional value as well.  Having access to poor quality food is as bad if not worse than having little access to any food.  At car Caritas we provide a complete dinner at lunchtime Monday through Friday which consists of protein, starch, vegetables, soup and a dessert.  We try to include fruit if available and also provide some take-out meal for people to have later on if they desire it.  In addition we have a Choice Pantry where people can select canned and dry goods, plus fresh vegetables, frozen meats and dairy products.  We follow the Food Bank's guidelines for quantities of each category based on family size, with the objective of providing up to 9 meals per person per month.  It is a supplement and not the only source of food they have.
