MANY BENEFICIARIES
The benefits of Reunion extend
far beyond workforce training. As
a revenue-generating enterprise,
Reunion will also benefit Crispus
Attucks' community meal program
by providing a renewable source of
funding. Additionally, revenue from
the food truck and catering business
will be reinvested so that Reunion will
continue to serve new apprentices and
will continue to feed the pipeline of
companies seeking new employees.
To fully grasp the impact, it is helpful
to understand the reality in Lancaster
City. While many areas have seen
significant economic development,
poverty remains a critical issue. Data
from American Community Survey
indicates that poverty rates in Lancaster
are higher than those of Philadelphia
and Pittsburgh (as a percentage of
total residents).
The goal is to connect the working
poor and the homeless who eat lunch
at Crispus Attucks during the week
to the opportunity to change their
trajectory through Reunion. Cheryl
Holland Jones, Executive Director of
Crispus Attucks, explains: "Not only
change one person's life, but once you
get a job, you possibly buy a house,
change the entire direction of
your family."
The broader community will have the
opportunity to experience Reunion
as a new option for lunch, dinner and
special events. The food truck will be
positioned around the City and County,
and a catering service will bring the
unique menu of soul food to meetings,
events, and parties. It provides the
ideal opportunity to directly engage
with solutions for addressing poverty.
In partnering with Reunion for catering,
special events, or even just a lunch
break, you are literally reinvesting in
your community. In that way, Reunion
also serves to raise awareness about
poverty issues and solutions.
