The food bank transition immediately into disaster relief mode when a storm hits our service area. Following the storm, we work with our food pantries and meal programs to begin response and recovery efforts. We continue providing relief long after other recovery efforts have ended.
Anytime a major disaster hits our service area, Feeding America sends food and supplies. We work to get those supplies as quickly as possible to affected communities. We coordinate disaster efforts with local government officials, Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) and the American Red Cross to ensure unduplicated, efficient and timely relief.
Ways to Get Involved
Volunteer for Disaster Relief
Volunteers are needed to pack and distribute emergency food boxes, assist with mobile pantries, or make and answer phone calls during the days following a disaster.
Please fill out this form and list Emergency Response to be added to our database of emergency volunteers.
There is always a sense of urgency to quickly help those in need after a disaster strikes. However, the need for relief efforts continue for months after the disaster is over. We remain in communities long after other disaster organizations leave.
Donate today to help us provide immediate disaster relief to our service area during times of natural disaster or crisis.
