Hunger and the need for food knows no season.

Right now, food pantries are struggling to maintain the levels of service they have been seeing over the past year.

The cost of fuel is cutting into already slim grocery budgets for many, and the supply chain issues around the world are affecting the amount of food available for food rescue or other traditional methods of stocking pantry shelves. In the past, food pantries would see some regular donors making regular trips with a bag or two of groceries that, collectively, had a tremendous impact. Fuel costs are keeping people closer to home, and reducing the amount of “extra” people are able to do.

Food pantries are feeling the squeeze, and are looking for help.

Let’s come together as a community to help!
