As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together, one thing is clear: we’ll be here to support our community for as long as we’re needed. As schools and businesses close, we know communities depending on us will be the most impacted: families whose children rely on school lunches, neighbors whose hours are cut or jobs are lost, and seniors who look to the Food Bank for groceries.

These are unprecedented times, but we’re grateful for our community joining together to ensure our neighbors have access to groceries. Thanks to the generosity of businesses and corporations in our community – and you – we’ll be there to meet the growing need.

Here are a few ways you can make a difference
