“There are more vulnerable people in our community than we thought, and circumstances can shift practically overnight – people who may not have necessarily need our services in the past need it now.”
– Marsha Ivey, Gethsemane Church of Christ Food Pantry
Food insecurity can happen to anyone. During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Food Bank and member food pantries and meal sites have seen a dramatic increase in the need for emergency food. Recently furloughed and unemployed individuals are seeking support for themselves and their families, possibly for the first time.
This summer, your neighbors are worried about how they will feed their kids as federal stimulus support winds down and there is no other relief in sight. Please support local families during an unprecedented time of need.
