(GAP) Grocery Assistance Program:
COVID-19 and inflation have created many financial and food-insecure households. EBLB is focused on the food crisis and is distributing healthy groceries to families in need while providing nutrition guides and healthy recipes. EBLB also aids in filling out online forms for SNAP benefits as well as other applications. As part of our efforts, we supplement families with 2-weeks of healthy groceries. All families we serve have children, and some of those served are senior citizens that have been pre-screened to receive our services.
Donations are used to purchase bulk groceries, produce, packing supplies, and all other costs associated with feeding the community with dignity. Donations also cover the cost of delivering the groceries directly to the doorsteps of families in need. The average cost to serve a family of 4 for 2-weeks is $75.00.
Many families have endured financial and emotional hardships, and the stories we hear are heartbreaking. “Mommy/Daddy I am hungry,” is the last thing a parent wants to hear. We are working tirelessly to ensure that we can feed every hungry family that walks through our doors.
