We have created the COVID-19 Emergency Fund to acquire and distribute more food and supplies to continue to meet the needs of our current customers, while also addressing the rising need as job opportunities are impacted by this crisis. With the unprecedented shutdown of schools, large portions of the hospitality industry and many other aspects of normal life, we anticipate an increased demand for food in our community. While we typically provide enough food for 150,000+ meals each day and serve more than 500,000 customers annually across our 20-county service area, we expect these numbers to increase significantly in the weeks and months ahead.

Thank you for the overwhelming generosity and support.
We are mobilizing new strategies, approaches and options in connecting food to our hungry neighbors during this public health threat, allowing us to step up at a time when the community and those we serve need it most.
