Families in Crisis recently received a $25,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program to assist with its Healthy New Beginnings Program. Specifically, this grant will impact the local community by providing survivors of domestic and sexual violence with comprehensive nutritional services and access to a food pantry.“Survivors in the rural Tennessee counties of Grundy, Warren and Sequatchie face many nutritional challenges,” said Kristy Stubblefield, executive director of Families in Crisis. “This grant will help us provide a safety net for them and their families by giving them the skills and resources needed to eat healthy on a limited budget and remain self-sufficient.”The Healthy New Beginnings Program provides comprehensive services and an on-site food pantry that allows clients to select healthy, nutritious food, accompanied with specially designed cooking classes for both adults and children to complement the food provided.
