As the DRI Foundation works to support organizations during the COVID-19 crisis, helping the food-insecure has become a vital part of its efforts, with the help of national food bank organization Feeding America.
The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. Donors, staff, and volunteers all play an important role in its efforts to end hunger in the United States.
“With the help of monetary contributions to the COVID-19 Response Fund and critical partnerships with donors in the supply chain, food bank[s] … continue to serve their communities and no food bank has shuttered as a result of the pandemic,” the organization explained in a press release. “Food bank respondents reported distributing a total of 136 million pounds of food – or 113.6 million meals – to neighbors facing hunger.”
The DRI Foundation is proud to support such nonprofit organizations in communities impacted by disasters to provide crucial assistance. 100 percent of the money collected for the Global Pandemic Fund will go to small, local organizations that are an integral part of their communities.
