“If we can conquer space, we can conquer hunger” – Buzz Aldrin
“In order for those most affected by the crisis to have hope for rebuilding their lives, their basic need for food must be met,” said All Faiths Food Bank CEO Sandra Frank. “Hunger relief is essential to our community’s resiliency and eventual restoration in the midst of this pandemic”.
All Faiths Food Bank is the only food bank and largest hunger relief organization in Sarasota and DeSoto counties. Rated 4-stars by Charity Navigator and a member of Feeding America and Feeding Florida, All Faiths provides millions of meals each year through robust programs and partnerships with charitable organizations in the community. In addition to food distribution, All Faiths Food Bank operates a roster of innovative direct service programs that not only solve the immediate problem of hunger but strive to end hunger by helping families and individuals gain long-term food security, better health outcomes, and self-sufficiency.
For every $1 given the food bank can purchase 5 meals, so this donation can fund over 5,000 meals! All Faiths Food Bank currently has a campaign running to raise funds for COVID relief. COVID is creating a pandemic of hunger in our community and leaving so many families with uncertain futures. As of early June, the Food Bank had seen an increase in need of approximately 120%, with new clients increasing almost 45% at food distribution sites.
