Hunger in America 2014
Feeding America's Hunger in America 2014 report documents the critical role that All Faiths Food Bank plays in supporting struggling families in our region. As the hub of hunger relief locally, All Faiths serves 51,800 people each year.
The study reveals that hunger in our region has no age or ethnic boundaries.
It shows that low wages and underemployment help drive the need for food assistance, and that people face desperate choices and poor health as well.
Our programs help stabilize families, keep them in their homes, manage their health, and moves them toward self-sufficiency. With support from our generous community, All Faiths Food Bank can increase its ongoing efforts to provide fresh produce and meat at distributions, work towards meeting the growing demand for food, and provide nutrition education to the people here who need it most.
All Faiths' participation in the study was made possible by Gulf Coast Community Foundation.
