21 Apr Across Texas, food banks are being squeezed from both ends
Demand for food supplies have increased exponentially. Meanwhile, fewer volunteers are showing up to help, and food donations have declined.
In an effort to support the valiant efforts of the staff and volunteers at the food banks, The CFO Suite is donating $10,000 each to the North Texas Food Bank and Houston Food Bank. Please consider utilizing one of the two links below to make a donation, whatever the size. With 1 in 6 people in Texas considered food-insecure even before this epidemic you can help right now.
Houston’s food bank, the largest in the country, says the need for meals is even greater now than it was after Hurricane Harvey!
Before Dallas’ shelter-in-place order went into effect, North Texas Food Bank’s mobile pantries each served about 100 people on a typical day. Now, each pantry might see as many as 800 people per day. On Tuesday, one mobile pantry reported distributing 1,260 boxes in two hours. When the food was gone, the police turned away a two-mile line of cars still waiting.
Did you know that every $1 helps provide 3 nutritious meals for hungry children, families, and seniors in our community!
Thank you for your generous support!
