Covid-19 Emergency Food Fund
Join our effort to put food on the table in all of our sponsored communities during this time of crisis.
As we all learn to navigate this new reality, Family-to-Family is above all focused on trying to ensure that during this crisis, our 37 community partners across the U.S. are able to provide emergency food assistance to everyone who walks through their doors.
That means not only the impoverished families we already sponsor in those communities, but also the newly unemployed seeking help for the first time. We anticipate that our partner organizations will very soon be stressed beyond their capacities. Some already are — in Orlando, Florida, to name one, our community partner has reported a startling surge in the numbers of families coming to her food pantry for food, and at the same time the supplies she relies on are lower than normal and dwindling fast. She has already found it necessary to increase the pantry’s hours of operation.
Our goal is to both expand the number of families sponsored in each community as more families find themselves in dire financial straits, and support our partner organizations so they can provide groceries and other basic supplies (diapers, toiletries, paper goods) more easily to the additional families finding themselves unexpectedly in need of help.
Many of our current recipient moms and dads have increased needs as well — many have also lost jobs, and with little or no financial reserves, are struggling even more than before to obtain basic life essentials for themselves and their children. For those families with children that usually rely on free or reduced-price meals at school (often both breakfast and lunch), the school closures have not just been an inconvenience; they’re an emergency.
Thankfully, the issue of food insecurity for these vulnerable families is one we can actually do something about, right now. With your donation to our designated Covid-19 Emergency Food Fund, we’ll be able to help our “neighbors” in need in all 37 of our sponsored communities across the country to obtain extra food and supplies when needed.
Please give generously.
