Hunger Fight Update Packing Events Postponed, Funds Urgently Needed

Published Wednesday, March 18, 2020

 

The COVID-19 outbreak is impacting our country in ways we have never faced before. Hunger Fight has responded by distributing additional meal packs to children in our schools, to senior centers and to our partners to ensure they will continue to have meals to eat over the weekend.

 

We rely heavily on volunteers to pack the meals needed for distribution through meal packing events in the community and in our warehouse.  However, in an abundance of caution and in compliance with governmental recommendations that groups be limited, we will be postponing all packing events for two weeks starting March 18.

 

After that date, unless otherwise instructed, we will again start packing events.  At that time, we will need volunteers to help pack meals for distribution and we encourage community volunteers and businesses to sign up to help.

 

At this time, our inventory of food is quickly being depleted. We have enough on hand to meet our immediate needs, but will require urgent financial support to purchase raw materials to replenish our inventories, enabling us to continue to provide children food for the balance of the school year and to summer programs.

 

To donate or volunteer, please call 904-374-5623, go to our website at www.hungerfight.org or our Facebook page at facebook.com/hungerfight2012.
