In Homewood, one in four people face food insecurity, a fact that surprised Nick Koster when he first learned it.

“Even in a community like Homewood, which you would consider to be well off, you never know what people are struggling with, the private battles people are facing — whether it's food insecurity, not knowing how to buy school supplies for their kids or not knowing where to find a winter coat,” said Koster, program director of Open Access, a Homewood-based nonprofit that aims to meet the needs of the area’s underserved communities.

Open Access will serve community . . .
