Hunger has many faces
Community support enables the Food Bank to serve more than 800,000 people every month. Approximately one-quarter of our food goes to children, and roughly one-fifth ends up in the hands of older adults. It is estimated that only 10% of our food goes to the homeless, but this is an important population for us. The majority of our food goes to low-income families and individuals who sometimes struggle to make ends meet in this expensive location that we all call home.
