Food banks across the country are doing what they do best – feeding people in need within their communities. And what food banks need more right now is your help with monetary donations.
What are food banks doing during the COVID-19 outbreak?
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.
Where does your donation go?
Simply choose an amount and one of our partner food banks to donate to. From there, the food bank will deem how to best use the funds to help sure that no one goes hungry. Food banks, such as Northern Illinois Food Bank, are able to maximize donations to provide nutritious meals to our hungry neighbors as every $1 you give helps provide $8 worth of nutritious groceries.
Bottom line, food bank programs are changing the lives of those in need during this global pandemic.
