How do I secure funding for increased food distribution?
Communicate with your donors about the heightened need for food distribution among children and families. This is an opportunity to display the important work that you are doing in the community and encourage them to continue donating or even provide additional support to cover food costs.
Find areas within your budget that are no longer needed due to social distancing and program shifts. Reallocate those funds to cover the potential need for food among the most vulnerable families in your area.
