What does a single mom of five children, a man being treated for blood cancer and a college student in his 50’s all have in common?
They are among the 270,000 of our neighbors you have been nourishing through this pandemic.
The single mom? She recently shared with us, “This food is the main reason why my kids and I are able to eat so well–especially because of the fresh produce. I no longer have to go hungry so my kids can eat.”
The man with blood cancer? He was “very concerned about bringing home the virus” because he’s immunocompromised. He found our new contactless drive-thru distributions to be “very helpful.”
Oh, and the non-traditionally-aged college student? He’s graduating this month with his bachelor’s degree and described the food he received as being “pivotal” to his success!
When you support the Food Bank, you’re not just feeding your neighbors–you are reducing their stress levels, improving their health and allowing them to better cope with whatever challenges they are facing.
Your ongoing kindness is reassuring our clients–both old and new–that even though we may be apart, they are not alone!
