Today we are living in a nation divided, but we must find ways to come together for both our country and our neighbors. On this #MLKdayofservice, we encourage you to contact your local food bank and ask how you can help serve families facing hunger in your community. (1/2)

Food is moving through the Food Bank at record-high volumes.

With a 38% increase of need in our service area, our Operations Team is working hard to get truckload after truckload of food out to the community as quickly as possible.


Food banks distributed a record-breaking number of meals last year, but none of it would have been possible without your support. We are so thankful for everyone continuing to help in 2021 by donating, volunteering, or sharing a
story. 🧡
