Foodlink’s response to the COVID-19 public health emergency has been two-tiered to address to the growing need in our communities. We are preparing thousands of: (1) healthy meals for distribution to school-age kids, and (2) Emergency Food Supply Boxes (EFSB) for households throughout our service area.
Local residents in need of emergency food can call 2-1-1 (or text 898-211) if they are seeking an EFSB. Foodlink has already distributed more than 10,000 boxes to our network of 100+ food pantries and Mobile Pantry sites throughout our 10-county region. More sites have been identified, and we continue to partner with 2-1-1 to share information about distribution sites.
These are not the only emergency food resources available, as 2-1-1 also can provide a full listing of all Foodlink’s hunger-relief partners in our region.
