Happy New Year! Like many, we at Food Lifeline are happy to put 2020 behind us, and we enter the New Year with renewed faith and confidence in our communities’ ability to support our friends and neighbors facing hunger.
2020 brought much hardship – from a pandemic, economic disarray, record unemployment and devastation to service industries, to cultural and political strife, and double the number of people experiencing hunger and food insecurity – many seeking food assistance for the very first time. Yet, this community stepped up in unprecedented ways – providing charitable contributions both large and small, safely volunteering with masks and social distancing, and using their voices with their legislators and in the election to advance policies and perspectives that advance our efforts against hunger.
We are grateful for your on-going commitment and support as we focus on the road ahead. To all of our friends, from the Food Lifeline family, we wish you a happy, healthy and safe New Year!
