Faces of Hunger

Hunger affects a diverse group of people. Clients seeking help from the Foodbank’s agencies and programs include seniors, children, hardworking families, single parents, the newly unemployed, and more. To a family in crisis, Foodbank programs can provide a little hope and support during a difficult time.

These are the stories of real people in our community who need the help and support of the Foodbank's agencies and programs.
