Seasons for Sharing supports the Phoenix area nonprofit food program | Instant News

In the 53 year history of St. Food Bank. Mary, Jerry Brown, communications director for the nonprofit, says they never distribute more than 10 million pounds of food a month. But since thenThe COVID-19 pandemic begins March, 10 million pounds is their monthly average.

“We are now distributing as much as 11 million pounds of food a month,” said Brown. “Everything from the way we make the boxes when we distribute the food to the way we get it to our destination has a total difference of 180 degrees.”

According to Brown, St. Mary’s conducted a survey of people who received food donations in June and found half of them had never been to a food bank before.

“In fact, a lot of people who come, they know how to get to the food bank because they are people who have volunteered here before or they are people who have donated food or money here before. “The only difference is this time they are on the other side of the line,” said Brown.

In line with the trend, Brown expects a record number of people needing Thanksgiving turkeys this year as well.
