Thanks to many of you, we reached our October goal, raising $150,000 to meet our Matching Gift Challenge! We are so grateful to all of our supporters who made this possible, including Roberts Oxygen and Employees for their one-to-one match of the first $100,000 donated, and to the Robert Shattner Foundation for extending the challenge and matching an additional $50,000.
With many Montgomery County families already food insecure before the pandemic, a staggering 95,000+ of our neighbors are struggling to put nutritious food on the table.
In response, our County and Greater Washington Community Foundation launched FOOD FOR MONTGOMERY, a public-private initiative working to address the alarming spike in food insecurity due to COVID-19 by facilitating a number of initiatives, including this Matching Gift Challenge.
From all of us at Manna Food Center and FOOD FOR MONTGOMERY, thank you for helping to fight hunger in these unprecedented times.
