Your gift to the Fresh Start for 2017 Matching Gift Campaign will help us provide food for every new family needing assistance from the Food Bank in 2017. Historically, more than 200 new families turn to the Food Bank each month. Your gift will provide a fresh start for these neighbors who have fallen on hard times and will give them hope for the future. As an added bonus, every $1 donated between now and midnight on December 31 will be matched up to $25,000.
At the Food Bank, we believe that no one should go hungry. To that end, we provide food to about 36,000 people in need each year through our programs and partner agencies. Some of our clients are seniors, some are single parents, some are homeless, some have disabilities. Over half have jobs but still can't make ends meet. That’s why the Food Bank is here. Clients can choose free food at our Food Share pantries; children can eat healthy meals at Kids Cafe sites; and nonprofit agencies can access food for their programs. Thanks to our many volunteers and those who donate food and funds, we distribute over 9 million pounds of food annually.
