S06 E10 – Second Harvest’s Forward S.T.E.P.S.


Dorica Watson joins us this month for a chat about Second Harvest Food Bank‘s poverty elimination program, Forward S.T.E.P.S.. The acronym stands for “Support Transforming Empowerment Pathways to Sustainability,” and this initiative is a relationship-based program in which social service agencies, businesses, and community members come together to support ALICE (“Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed”) and other under-resourced individuals working to access their full potential. We also learn about an interesting educational experience program offered by the group that seeks to raise empathy and understanding about living in poverty.

To learn more about Second Harvest Food Bank itself, check out our recent episode featuring the group!
