We are facing a food emergency. Inflation has hit its highest level in nearly 40 years and the rising cost of food is taking a toll on folks who have the least to spend. Our food suppliers warn us to brace for a 30% increase in food costs in coming months – yet demand for our meal service has gone up 35% since last year. And donations are down 10%. Covering this gap is not something currently within our reach.
Quite simply, this year we are struggling to make ends meet.
As inflation continues to rise, you can already see how a few extra dollars can add up on your own grocery bill. We’re experiencing the exact same thing with our own grocery bill for 1,000 much-needed daily meals.
We need your help right now. Please donate today.
Thank you for being a part of our caring community at Our Place.
