Food banks across the country are doing what they do best – feeding people in need within their communities. And we are doing what we do best, which is continuing to support our food bank partners.
What are food banks doing during the COVID-19 outbreak?
Feeding America and food banks across the country continue to mobilize their response to the pandemic, as they deploy new distributions, many of which are drive-through and outdoor, to maximize social distancing. They are distributing emergency food boxes, working with school districts and after-school programs to offer grab-and-go cold meals for children and families to help fill the gap while schools are closed.
