Why Fundraise?

Can you imagine living on $820 a month? After paying rent and utilities, the average person who comes to a food bank is left with less than $8 a day to afford food and expenses.     

Many household simply go hungry in order to afford their basic needs.  

Last year:

  • 100,000 people visited a food program
  • 28%  were children
  • 44% food bank clients went for an entire day without food
  • The #1 reason people turned to a food bank for the first time was a job loss

You can make a difference!
