Our shelves are sparse at the worst possible time…
Extra SNAP benefits – food stipends that low-income families rely on – are set to expire this month, and this means that many will see their monthly food budget cut by an average of $95!
This difference can make or break these families, who will have to make difficult decisions between food and other necessities like utilities and healthcare.
Already, many of our pantries are reporting as much as a 20% increase in the number of neighbors seeking assistance.
We need your help to bridge the gap – with less donated food coming in, Feeding Southwest Virginia must increasingly depend on suppliers to purchase food for our partner agencies and pantries.
$40,000 buys your neighbors a truckload…the first $4,000 will be matched!
We need your help to meet our goal of purchasing a truckload of food. To help us toward that goal, a generous donor has offered to match the first $4,000 of donations to this cause.
Won’t you help us make sure that our deliveries are on-time for pantries across the region?
