At the height of the first wave of COVID-19, Daily Bread food banks saw a 200% increase in new clients.
Prior to COVID-19, there were an average of about 65,000 visits to Daily Bread member food banks per month. By June, this number had increased to close to 80,000 per month. As of December 2020, Daily Bread member food banks are seeing more than 110,000 client visits per month, up from about 65,000 per month prior to COVID-19.
Before COVID-19, one in four children accessing food banks went hungry according to their guardian, and during the pandemic this increased to one in three.
For every $1 donated, Daily Bread Food Bank provides 1 nutritious meal to someone in need. Thanks to CG Gives generous matching program, you’ll DOUBLE this impact, meaning every dollar raised/donated by employees will be matched by the company and will mean Daily Bread can provide TWO nutritious meals.
