Metrovoice recognized the need for healthy eating habits and adequate nutrition in the community. Nearly 30 percent of households with children in the District of Columbia reported not being able to afford enough food. "Food Hardship" is a term defined by the Food Research and Access Center (FRAC) to define the quality and access to food in low-income neighborhoods. Metrovoice sets out to combat this by providing meals to over 500 children per month as well as workshops to encourage healthy eating habits and lifestyle.
