Why should we help?
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a public health and economic crisis, the effects of which are widespread. According to Feeding America, there are now more than 45 million individuals in the U.S. who are food insecure. People are now paying higher prices for their groceries, including a 40-year record rise in food costs. Combined with rising fuel prices, our neighbors continue to turn to the Foodbank and our vast network of partner agencies for assistance.
Rising food costs, and continued disruption to supply chains means that the Foodbank must purchase much more product than in the past. Help us close the summer meal gap by providing more than 150,000 meals to kids, families, and seniors facing hunger and food insecurity in our community. Will you join us?
