Winona organization seeks to aid nearly 6,000 residents in need

Nearly 6- thousand winona residents go to bed hungry, and a team of local organizations are working to put an end to that.

The winona wellbeing collaborative launched a community hub... connecting people in our community with the resources they need to improve their health and well-being.

The winona wellbeing collaborative decided to create the community hub after hearing about people in the community having to choose between paying rent or buying food.

The collaborative says they will first start focusing on food insecurity... particularly in families with children.

"we focus on children first, because we know that if the child is struggling themself, issues in the family household are likely.

So by tacling and helping reduce those barriers in that whole family unit, we're going to be impacting the children, hopefully to set them up for a life of success."

Multiple organizations across winona, including winona health, will give free screenings to families... if there are any signs of struggling to afford a healthy lifestyle, those families will be refferred to the community
