Letter from Feeding America
Hi to my friends at RMG,
Hope you are well ! I wanted to extend my thanks for your support and share an update – this is the work you make possible! Thank you!
Because of your dedication to Feeding America, families are receiving the nourishing meals they need during the cold winter months. At the close of 2018, your support helped us fight hunger among seniors, college students, children and people recovering from natural disasters—including the recent wildfires in California and hurricanes across the Southeast. Children like Richard, whose story is included in the Winter 2018-2019 Impact Report, were able to move from hungry to hopeful because of you.
As of this writing, the federal government reached an agreement to reopen for three weeks. However, as a result of the five-week shutdown, households across the country have been forced to make impossible choices between paying bills and buying food. Food banks and food pantries are witnessing increased needs in their communities, and in response they are sourcing more food, hosting special food distributions, extending their operating hours and helping federal workers apply for assistance programs. The shutdown has also highlighted the key role that dedicated partners like you play in helping us rapidly respond to people in need. For all you do to fight hunger, thank you.
As you read the report, please remember that your support makes a meaningful difference. Feeding America offers relief, energy and hope to millions of people each week, and it’s all because of your generous gifts. If you have questions about the programs your donations help fund, please reach out to me at any time. It would be my pleasure to share the multiple ways you make a difference for people struggling with hunger.
Best wishes always,
Director of Development
