The pandemic and the economic disruption it caused have triggered a nationwide hunger crisis. Many families—some for the first time—are having to make impossible choices between rent, transportation, utilities, medicine, and putting food on the table. In Sacramento County, about 280,000 individuals are now turning to Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services (SFBFS) for food assistance every month, an increase of 87% over 2019.
The need for SFBFS’ services is as great as ever, and after three straight years of rising demand, our resources are becoming increasingly stretched. But with your support, we’ll be able to keep pace with demand and distribute more food to more people than ever before. Whether you choose to run or walk the 5K or 10K, donate to an individual or team, or fundraise yourself, every dollar from Run to Feed the Hungry will be used to feed the nearly 1 in 5 Sacramentans who are at risk of hunger.
