The Springfield News-Sun’s annual Community Food Relief campaign runs through Jan. 9, collecting funds for the Second Harvest Food Bank

One in six people in our community lives with food insecurity, meaning families and individuals don’t have enough affordable, nutritious food to sustain their lives. Food banks in our area help those facing food insecurity, and every $1 donation to the Community Food Relief fundraising campaign provides six meals to someone in need.

Your generosity makes a difference, and so far Community Food Relief this year has raised $11.476 for Second Harvest Food Bank.

Giving is easy, and your donations are tax deductible. You can donate:

The hungry in our community include children, seniors, low-income workers, and those who have been impacted by the pandemic over the past two years.

Last year, thanks to your generosity, Community Food Relief raised more than $30,000, providing more than 180,000 meals to feed hungry families right here in our community. Your support makes a difference.
