COVID-19 Response

A year like no other

In Food Bank for the Heartland’s 40-year history, we have never experienced a hunger crisis like the current one caused by the pandemic. As we look forward, we are encouraged by signs of relief. However, we know the devastating impacts of COVID-19 upon those facing food insecurity across the Heartland will linger well beyond the pandemic. Meeting this need will require further innovation, partnership, and support.

We continue to be humbled by the community’s outpouring of kindness during this crisis. The support of our donors, volunteers, partners, board, and staff—as well as from our local, state, and federal governments—has played a vital role in helping families throughout the Heartland. Thank you!
