Feed the Hungry Feeds the Families Mission continues!

Feed the Hungry Feeds the Families

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools were closed in March. Children who had been served meals in our school kitchens could no longer receive this critically important nutrition. We quickly mobilized to retool operations in order to provide food for entire families, while complying with emergency government regulations and also ensuring the safety of staff and volunteers.

In the first 8 weeks of their Feed the Families emergency operation, more than 12,000 pantries were delivered, with each bag containing enough food to feed a family of 5 for 2 weeks. To respond to urgent requests from other NGOs and from concerned individuals trying to rescue their neighbors, outreach expanded beyond the communities where we typically operate. By the end of August, the program will have provided food for nearly 2,500,000 meals.

What’s Next?

It is not known when children will be back in school, or how long until their parents will be back to work. Therefore, the Feed the Families operation will continue as long as funds don’t run dry and the city continues to provide volunteers and help with transportation. At the same time, we plan to gear up to resume the school meals program.

Running these two programs simultaneously will be a logistical and financial challenge. In our 35 years of operations, we have never been so tested - and never so motivated to rise to the occasion,” says Al Kocourek, President of Feed the Hungry.
