The Food Bank and our hunger relief partners are feeling the effects of inflation as well. As costs rise, donations of both food and funds have decreased and we must purchase food when and where we can. Right now, food banks are paying about 40% more for food and transportation costs have risen by more than 20% in the last year. These increased expenses are hard to absorb even in the short-term, yet with the current economy we may be facing long- term difficulties. Your support is essential to our mission. Your gift provides not just food, but also a bit of hope to your neighbors who need both right now.
