Thank You Food Champions!
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to cancel our annual sponsorship dinner. This dinner would usually bring the Madera County Food Bank $40,000-$50,000, so we knew we had to do something different to replace it. Instead of the dinner, we introduced “Food Champions” and have been so pleased to see a positive response from our donors.
We have been working double time to ensure every individual in need of food is taken care of. We have been service 95,000 individuals a month and distributing up to 500,000 pounds of food a month since the pandemic, compared to our regular numbers of 45,000 individuals a month and distributing 275,000 pounds of food a month. We couldn’t do this without the help of our amazing donors, as listed below.
$5,000 OR MORE
Thank you everyone for participating in the Food Champions Campaign. We were able to more than replace the income our Annual Sponsorship Dinner would have generated. With the help of your generous donations we raised $90,000 for the Food Bank!
