While it might seem daunting to feed thousands of people, hungry families in our community are sure hoping you will. With your gift today, we can feed thousands in the Fredericksburg Area who need a little extra help this year. We are able to take every $10 you give and turn it into 30 meals.
At a time of year when families gather at tables filled with holiday favorites, the fact that one out of every four children in our community is struggling with food insecurity means that the most vulnerable are struggling.
If you were to ask a child who is only four years old what it is like not to have enough food to eat, they wouldn't use the fancy words used in statistical reports. They would just tell you, "My tummy aches. I'm hungry." This is the sad reality we face every day as we struggle to meet the need of those at risk.
Thanksgiving will be here soon. Your gift to the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank may be more needed than any other gift you give this holiday season. Please help today. Your donation will truly be a gift that matters for those in need. Together we can make sure hungry families in our community are able to celebrate Thanksgiving together.
