People Helping People in Hernando County, Inc., has been on the frontline of battling hunger in the community since its inception in 2009. Our mission is to end hunger in Hernando County by breaking the cycle of poverty to those served. We link people to benefits, education, training and resources empowering individuals to be productive members of the community. CrowdRise funds will be used to complete a licensed commercial kitchen for the People Helping People HELP Center, currently under construction. Upon completion, the kitchen will be used to prepare and serve nutritious food to the food insecure individuals in the community. As an incubator kitchen, it will encourage entrepreneurship and provide opportunities for beneficiaries to learn and practice skills of table waiting, busing tables, food preparation, baking, and culinary arts.
