Not having access to food is not the only factor that keeps people in the cycle of generational poverty. Second Harvest recognizes that rising out of this cycle requires both change to one’s personal lifestyle and way of thinking, as well as to larger governmental, educational, and corporate systems. Through Forward STEPS, Second Harvest offers support and education to achieve just that.
Forward STEPS is a community learning initiative that consists of several unique programs, and situates itself within the reality that giving away food is not enough. Forward STEPS helps members of our community learn about poverty as well as learn to break out of poverty
