    Feed the Hungry

    3/31/2020

    Many individuals and families have already stocked their personal pantries in preparation for quarantine. This has resulted in reduced donations to local food banks, food pantries and soup kitchens. Councils are encouraged to reach out and support local food banks through donations of food and especially funds.

    Action Steps

    1. Contact a local food bank or food pantry to ask their immediate needs. Build on existing relationships from past programs.
    2. Tell your pastor about the needs of local food banks and pantries. Ask for his permission to share this initiative with the entire parish through parish communication channels.
    3. Prioritize giving cash or gift cards directly to local food banks and pantries so they can purchase items they need most.
    4. If collecting food, make sure to take appropriate precautions and minimize contact with those driving up and dropping off.
    5. Coordinate with the partner food bank or food pantry concerning their desired method of delivery for food or funds. Adhere to all relevant coronavirus precautions and guidelines.
    6. Report your activities with the Leave No Neighbor Behind Survey at www.kofc.org/neighbor.
