Rooted in Community

In a season on many unknowns, trust our continued commitment to go beyond hunger.

For the long haul…

We will provide food, with a focus on nutrition, to the more than 75,000 of our neighbors struggling to put food on the table.

We will collaborate and build capacity with our network of community partners, pantries and member agencies to ensure access to real, healthy food.

We will educate on how to grow, cook and serve delicious, simple and healthy meals.

We will steward every donation to sustain our food supply, food security programs and educational opportunities that enrich our neighborhoods and move people beyond hunger.

Join us to go Beyond Hunger 365, our monthly giving community.

Quarterly Impact: October 2020

Program Highlight: Distribution

This year has been rife with unknowns… what remains certain is our commitment to serve our neighbors in need. We are so proud of our 120 + network partners we distribute to, all of which have remained open during the Covid-19 crisis serving their clients with compassion, care and grit.  Many of our agencies, while they remained open, did not have the capacity to meet the need. We were able to leverage relief funds to purchase capital assets such as commercial refrigeration and freezers enabling those agencies to accept and store more food.  We have adapted our distribution operations to safely and efficiently continue to serve. We developed our Sunshine Response Efforts for ‘truck to trunk’ food box (Sunshine Box) drive-thru distributions and “heat and eat” meals (Sunshine Meals) for home delivery and senior center drive-thru distributions.

 

We are grateful for the progress we’ve made during this unusual time thanks to your generous support. Your confidence and commitment to our mission with donations, time and words of encouragement make a difference in the work we do! We are here for the long haul….

 We distributed 2.3 million pounds of food (approximately 1.95 million meals) March – September 2020.
