We continue to monitor the development of COVID-19 and we’re taking proactive steps to protect the neighbors we serve, our Food Bank team, and our supporters. As the situation continues to rapidly evolve–we will closely follow this situation as it continues to unfold and will provide blog updates here in the coming days and weeks.
The Food Bank and our network of hunger-relief organizations are committed to making sure all of our neighbors have access to enough food during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis. Find information on local distributions, an agency in your neighborhood and SNAP (food stamps). Please be sure to call ahead to confirm that pantry hours and other details have not changed.
You can call your Senators and ask them to support the Families First Coronavirus Act. The bill includes $400M for TEFAP food and storage and distribution, expansion of SNAP benefits, and flexibility for programs – which all represent an important first step in helping our network manage the immediate needs of our communities.
