Cheers: A local program is helping to stamp out food insecurity through help from a popular food delivery service. The Greater Washington County Food Bank recently partnered with DoorDash to deliver boxes of food to older residents in Washington County. Called Project DASH, the program has grown from delivering 350 boxes monthly to 1,000 monthly. The shelf-stable staples in the boxes include canned fruits and vegetables and packages of pasta. In June, Greene County joined the program, and Fayette County plans to establish the program in the coming months through the Fayette County Community Action food bank. Partnerships like these are important to help those in the community who find themselves both in need and limited in their ability to travel to food distributions.
