For most of us, the holidays are a time of joy and celebration. For 1 in 5 in Monterey County who don’t have enough to eat, it’s often a time of pain and sadness. With your help, we can deliver food – and hope – to the men, women and children who need it most during the holiday season.
We fight hunger 365 days a year. However, it’s especially critical to reach out to more people during the holidays when the need is particularly acute. In the cold, winter months, when many are forced to make a choice between heat and food, 100,000 of our Monterey County neighbors look to the Food Bank for help – more than half of them are children. That’s why it’s so important that we work together to make sure everyone has enough to eat this holiday season.
Thank you in advance for giving generously!
