COVID-19 has affected our community like never before. Families have to make difficult budgeting choices, making it hard to put food on the table. Due to the pandemic, the Central Texas Food Bank has had a 220 percent increase in individuals seeking food assistance from the Food Bank for the first time. The pandemic also caused disruptions to their supply chain, reduced food donations from grocery stores and forced the Food Bank to purchase more food. A $1000 grant from the Awesome Foundation funded 4000 community meals.
