As COVID has disrupted our community, Catalyst Coalition is committed to providing a sense of normalcy to food insecure families. As Catalyst Coalition saw more and more ethnically diverse families struggling to put food on the table, they had a vision to create ethnic-centric food pantries to better meet our community’s food needs. Distributing specific “comfort foods” catering to their cultural palate offers a whole new level of support and encouragement to our families.
Alongside their dedicated partners (Duluth Middle School, Atlanta Food Bank, Helping Mamas, Student Leadership of Johns Creek, and the Senior First Center), Catalyst Coalition impacted 744 families at their meal distributions on February 15th. Their pantry team dispersed traditional Vietnamese, Asian, Latino, African American and other dishes. Catalyst Coalition’s new twist to our traditional food pantry model is gaining great momentum and Gwinnett Cares’ food response team is excited to help expand their reach and impact moving forward.
