Covid-19 brought many challenges, as we faced food shortages and the uncertainty of how to protect our clients and volunteers while still delivering food to those in need. All our supporters – from our faith-based organizations, businesses, community groups, and foundations to our volunteers - stepped up when we needed them the most, and because of them, we never missed a beat on food deliveries to those who needed our help.

While Covid-19 is no longer a pandemic, it continues to impact those who are most vulnerable. The reduction in SNAP benefits, the rise in food costs, and the high cost of living in Montgomery County continue to negatively affect many of our neighbors. In the four years since the pandemic first hit in early 2020, our food deliveries have increased by 132%, well more than double the number of deliveries we made pre-pandemic in 2019. Our ability to continue to provide food to our ever-growing client base is only possible due to the dedication and commitment of our supporters who continue to answer the call for donations of food, financial support, and dedicated volunteers.
