I'm Young And Empowered, Inc. Receives $48,000 Grant from Albertsons Nourishing Neighbors!

December 2020

With the holiday season upon us, we are grateful to receive a generous grant for $48,000 from Albertsons Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Initiative that will help us meet the increased demand for food assistance and ensure the most vulnerable members of our community can also celebrate the season.


Albertsons Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Initiative was developed to address COVID-19 related hunger issues on a local level. This round of Nourishing Neighbors grants focuses on the needs of marginalized communities, which have been particularly hard hit. Roughly 86 percent of Latino households with children and 66 percent of Black households with children reported serious financial problems during the pandemic. Across the board, the numbers are staggering.


No one should have to go hungry, especially during the holiday season, and this holiday season stands to be particularly challenging for many people. We’re grateful to Albertsons Nourishing Neighbors for awarding us this grant so we can help our neighbors who are struggling to put food on the table during this difficult time, also to keep families healthy and hopeful!

As we are all aware, this has been a daunting year for hunger relief programs and small nonprofits like ours but receiving this grant will help us finish out the year on a positive note. Our thanks to Albertsons Nourishing Neighbors for the support, partnership, and generosity that are truly making a difference!
