When you “speak out” you use your unique voice to urge your elected officials to do their part to help end hunger.

Decisions made by our elected officials have a huge impact both on the supply of food available to give to people in need and on the demand for charitable food assistance.

Help increase the supply of food for people struggling with hunger in our community.

The Food Bank gets food from many sources: individual donations, grocers, farmers, manufacturers and more. We also get much of our food, and funding to purchase food, from federal, state and local governments.

Help reduce the demand for Food Bank services.

Government food assistance programs provide food to older adults on fixed incomes, working adults with insufficient earnings, people with disabilities, and children – in school, at after-school programs and during the summer months when school meals are unavailable. If these programs lose funding or become more difficult to use, the seniors, families and children relying on this vital food assistance will turn to the Food Bank and our member agencies to try to meet their nutritional needs.
