Disaster Relief Capacity Boosted, Celebrated During Ribbon-Cutting

The Giving Coast

Last week leaders and team members from All Faiths Food Bank and the American Red Cross came together to celebrate the ARC's recent financial support - awarded through its Community Adaptation Program - designated toward the purchase of equipment that will improve AFFB's ability to respond during a disaster, increase critical capacity, and pursue its mission of providing healthy solutions to end hunger in Sarasota and DeSoto counties ... and beyond. An assessment of disaster activities in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian (2022) concluded that additional freezer/refrigeration was needed to strengthen disaster recovery efforts and increase capacity. AFFB’s most significant, immediate needs were freezer and cooler capacity; AFFB also requested additional material handling equipment to support the safe and timely transport of food within its warehouse, from receiving to shipping. AFFB leaders are grateful to the ARC for its many years of collaboration in times of disaster, to help our neighbors in need, through the present.
