Meet Elvia, a resilient and compassionate member of our community. A local resident, Elvia`s daily routine reflects her unwavering dedication to her family and her commitment to giving back.
At 5 am, Elvia begins her housekeeping job, tirelessly working to make ends meet for her family. Her work ethic and determination are truly commendable. Yet, her day doesn`t end there. After her shift, she selflessly travels to The Community Market in Edwards to volunteer her precious free time. There, she assists in preparing the market for the influx of customers, a task she carries out with a warm smile, knowing firsthand what it`s like to patiently wait in line as a customer herself.
Elvia`s journey with The Community Market began when she faced a challenging period in her life. After breaking her wrist, she found herself burdened with mounting hospital bills and the relentless pressure of daily living expenses. It was then that Elvia turned to The Community Market for support. In this trying time, The Community Market has been a lifeline for her family, ensuring they have access to the food they need to thrive.
Gratitude runs deep in Elvia`s heart. She is profoundly thankful for the unwavering support of the Eagle Valley Community Foundation through The Community Market. In her heart, she feels an undeniable call to volunteer and give back to the very community that has provided her family with essential assistance during their times of need. Elvia`s story is a testament to the strength of community bonds, the resilience of the human spirit, and the power of reciprocal support within our local neighborhoods.
This month at Eagle Valley Community Foundation, we`re especially thrilled to join the nationwide observance of Hunger Action Month and celebrate the richness of Hispanic Heritage Month, a time when we reaffirm our commitment to addressing the pressing issue of food insecurity while honoring the diverse cultures and contributions of the Hispanic community through our program, The Community Market.
The Latino and Hispanic community plays a critical role in the food system of the U.S. According to a National Agricultural Survey, around 83% of farm workers are Hispanic. Latino people also make up around a quarter of restaurant workers and are heavily involved in roles throughout the supply chain. It is safe to say that our food system as we know it would not be the same without the contributions of this community.
Sadly, despite their huge contributions to the food system, Latinos are more likely to be food insecure and to live in frontline communities that experience the effects of pollution and environmental degradation firsthand. That experience, along with deeply held cultural practices of not wasting resources means being green comes naturally to many Latinos. This applies to the food waste movement as well, with many influential and impactful initiatives coming from the community.
Join us in honoring his hard work by considering your role in the food system and joining us in the solution at The Community Market!
