Through the Lens of Trauma and Resilience


Leah's Pantry is a California-based nonprofit committed to a vision of all people being nourished, regardless of socioeconomic status. Their programs and products are designed to ensure all people have access to healthy food and feel competent in preparing easy, nutritious meals for themselves and their families. They approach their work through the lens of trauma and resilience. They believe that positive, nourishing food experiences can heal individuals, encourage healthy community norms, promote nutritional security, and support the realignment of broken food systems in low-income communities.

The organization cultivates nourished communities to build, deliver, and evaluate programs using a trauma-informed lens, creating space for deep engagement, reflection, and a strengths-based approach.
