Continuity and Perseverance

Food Connect strongly values its commitment to providing logistical and food support in this time of need during COVID19 as hourly workers go without pay, children miss school meals, and food shelters express increased needs. We will be continuing operations in order to support spikes in food needs for emergency meal sites, shelters, soup kitchens, hospitals, and healthcare workers on the frontlines. To support helping us get food and supplies to those in need during this time, please consider donating.
