Times have changed and there is an urgent need to help individuals and organizations affected by COVID-19. School closures, rising unemployment and rising poverty due to quarantine and stay-at-home orders will disproportionately impact people already at risk of hunger and could result in an estimated additional 17.1 million people experiencing food insecurity, an increase of 46%. Unemployment in California in May was at a record 25% and climbing. The situation is becoming more dire as food donations are in decline due to increased consumer demand and supply chain challenges, including decreased food donations from manufacturers and grocery retailers, and less shelf-stable food available for purchase.
If you are able to do so, I invite you to join me in making a difference in our community. I am making a commitment to raise funds to provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need. Remember we are all in this together. My suggestion is to be kind, be brave & be grateful. Thank you for helping make a difference in our community.
