In The Bank

Posted on Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Springfield is home to some of the poorest most food insecure neighborhoods in Western Massachusetts.  And some of these neighborhoods were hit hardest by last weeks tornadoes.

Many were left in dire straits after the June 1st storm. Due to severely damaged and condemned homes and an inability to rebuild, or prolonged periods without electricity, it was even harder than usual for these folks to get food.

In response, The Food Bank held three food drops where we distributed high energy and easy to eat foods like peanut butter and jelly, bread, granola bars, snacks, fruit cups, and water (which was in very high demand).  The first two of these drops were held at Springfield Partners for Community Action, and the third at the Revival Time Evangalistic Center.  Here are a few photos documenting our work there and the overwhelming community response.
