With the help of our food, over 110,000 people in need have access to nutritious meals year round – and we expect to serve twice as many people in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
At a time when compromised immune systems increase the likelihood of people contracting the COVID-19 virus, it is especially important to strengthen vulnerable populations’ safe and consistent access to the full range of nutrients, which improves health outcomes and provides relief from the pain of hunger and uncertainty.
With food stocking their kitchens, filling their plates, and nourishing their bodies:
In addition to food, many of our member agencies provide services that help the people they serve transcend the destructive effects of poverty and homelessness, such as employment assistance, housing placement, psychological counseling, job training, money management assistance, and parenting classes. Our food nourishes their bodies and minds as they work hard to achieve independent success.
