Food Insecurity in the region*

Throughout the year, The Food Bank relies on donations from individuals, businesses, foundations, civic organizations, faith-based groups, schools and government to fulfill our mission.

Thanks to your support, we provided the equivalent of 12.3 million meals in our previous fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2019 – Sept. 30, 2020) — a significant increase from meals provided in previous years. We are grateful to count you as partners as we work together to create a hunger-free western Massachusetts.
