About: Since 1980, the Food Bank has worked to restore hope and health to those struggling with hunger through food distribution, hunger relief programs, education and advocacy. Last fiscal year (FY16-17), the Food Bank and its network of nearly 900 community-based partner agencies provided 70 million pounds of nutritious food — equivalent to 58 million meals — to food insecure individuals, children, families and seniors.
2017-18 DGIN funding will support the cost of food, fresh produce, equipment, contracts and consumables (plates, plastic ware, napkins, etc.) for child nutrition programs. The grant will help the Food Bank continue to provide for the nutritional and social needs of the children of Durham County through these child nutrition programs, including Kids Cafe, Weekend Power Pack, School Pantries and Kids Summer Meals.
