in the news
Before the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 200,000 residents in Palm Beach County were considered food insecure, meaning they lack access to a sufficient quantity of affordable and nutritious food. More than 52,000 children went to bed hungry each night. Those numbers have increased now as COVID-19 and its impact on the economy continue to devastate thousands of local families. The pandemic has caused demand to increase by an average of 60 percent at food banks across the country, according to Feeding America.
