All Faiths Food Bank Launches "ThankFULL" Campaign

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY OCT 21, 2020

This fall, All Faiths Food Bank is turning its attention to community members who may be struggling during the holiday season. Through October and November, All Faiths’ “ThankFULL Tummies” campaign will help to provide holiday meals for Thanksgiving. Throughout the month of December, the “ThankFULL Hearts” campaign will raise funds to provide holiday meals for area children, families, seniors and veterans.

With the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic continuing to be felt across our region, there will be even more empty plates this holiday season. Since mid-March, All Faiths Food Bank has seen an overall increase in need of approximately 120%, with new clients increasing 45% at mobile pantry events. All Faiths hopes that its holiday campaign can raise enough to provide 9,000 turkeys for Thanksgiving and 4 million meals for families in the community who are  facing hunger and struggling to put food on the table. “The holiday season is going to be very different this year and will likely change the way we celebrate. Needs will be different, too,” said All Faiths Food Bank CEO Sandra Frank. “How do you furnish a feast if your paycheck has vanished? With the help of our community, we can provide a holiday celebration and healthy meals for families who are struggling to put food on the table.”

This is the fourth year of the ThankFULL campaign. To learn more about All Faiths or to help turn empty plates into ‘ThankFULL Tummies and Hearts’ by making a donation, go to allfaithsfoodbank.org or call 941-379-6333.
