How We Got Here

Bringing Justice Home was formed when a group of like-minded people, who had been previously involved in food ministries in Louisville, saw a need for more direct, personalized support for those experiencing food insecurity. We also saw a need to build just relationships with the people we serve in order to normalize our interdependence and eliminate the stigma of needing help. We seek to provide a more personal encounter than is sometimes experienced at traditional food pantries. This is why we use the term "neighbor" when referring to those we serve; we affirm the common humanity we all share.

Moreover, we wanted to help those who have barriers to accessing traditional food pantries, especially during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. This global health crisis has highlighted the already existing inequities that separate those who have privilege and resources and those who do not. There are those who can easily afford contactless food delivery services, while others, whose needs are just as important and valid, cannot afford safer options for accessing food and other needed supplies.

Bringing Justice Home seeks to do something new, exciting, and life-giving at the intersection of these needs, desires, experiences, and resources. We have found great joy in sharing what we have and invite you to join us in this joyful experience. Let's build a just and equal world together.
