The past year was rough for the 1 in 5 Central Texans who are struggling with hunger during the pandemic, up from 1 in 7 the previous year. As Central Texans continue to be affected by COVID-19, more families than ever are turning to the Central Texas Food Bank for the first time.
With business closures, cut hours and child care costs, the struggle isn’t over for thousands of Central Texans in need. As we continue to distribute record amounts of food, we need your help to help meet the growing demand.
During I Live Here I Give Here’s Amplify Austin, you can help us provide nourishing meals for families during these challenging times. This year’s 24-hour day of giving is from 6 p.m. on March 4 to 6 p.m. on March 5. Asking for help can be hard. Thanks to Amplify Austin, giving back is easy.
