"Wellness" involves being aware of ourselves as whole a people, including a sense of balance and contentment. It is the feeling that things are going well for us today and can continue to go well tomorrow.
It is the belief that we have meanful relationships and a sense of meaning and purpose. At Pathways Enrichment Center, we believe that helping people improve their personal wellness is critical.
Wellness incorporates all the eight (8) dimensions shown in the wellness wheel. Each dimension of wellness can affect our overall quality of life because it directly relates to how long we live and how well we live.
It's about more than food. PEC's food pantry provides much more than meals. With its volunteers and passion to end food insecurity in Lorain County, they bring hope to people in need and thus deliver social cohesion. The right food matters. It's about healthy food such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy.
PEC Share Program is a community asset that provides food, grocery products and meal programs to families, children, seniors and individuals at risk for food insecurity. These services are provided directly to those in need.
