Providence Health Care wins grant for Nutrition Essentials Program

— Women & Children's Free Restaurant (WCFR) has announced Providence Health Care's investment of $15,000 in their Nutrition Essentials program. The grant will support operating expenses necessary to improve access to health resources for those in need, and was provided in part by Providence Health Care through its Community Benefit program.

Nutrition Essentials will move into a new demonstration kitchen and classroom in 2018. The City of Spokane's Community, Housing and Human Services Department (CHHS) and STCU are underwriting remodeling costs. The program receives hands on support from EWU's public health students, and WSU nursing students and dietetic interns.

Women & Children's Free Restaurant has offered meal services for 30 years which includes nutritious scratch-made, restaurant-style meals for families in need in an atmosphere that encourages conversation and a sense of community. Diners are not asked to qualify to receive the service.

The reach is broadened to those in need through collaboration with partner agencies. Nutritious meals are prepared in WCFR's kitchen and served at 23 programs offered by: Catholic Charities, The Jonah Project, Life Services Maternity Home, Cup of Cool Water, Family Promise of Spokane, Feed Cheney, GraceSon House, Ronald McDonald Charities, Shadle Park Presbyterian Church, Spokane YoungLives, Southwest Spokane Community Center, SPEAR Ministries, Inc., Transitions, Union Gospel Mission, Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Volunteers of America, West Central Community Center, and YWCA.
