Community Servings is excited to announce the launch of the Food is the Foundation Campaign – the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the agency’s 28-year history.
In the last five years, we have experienced a 40% growth in the demand for our medically tailored meals. At any given time, we have a waitlist of 50-150 people who are in dire need of the meals and nutrition services Community Servings provides. On average, it takes 3-6 months for an individual to get off our waitlist and start receiving our meals – far too long for someone who is critically ill.
Recognizing this unmet need for medically tailored meal, we are excited to announced the Food is the Foundation Campaign for Community Servings. The Campaign will fund an expanded 31,000 square-food “food campus” to triple meal production to serve more of our critically ill neighbors in need and expand to more communities.
The Food is the Foundation Campaign will address the urgent need for our meals by expanding the kitchen’s capacity, and will also feature:
The total cost of the expansion project is $21 million, of which $11 million will be secured from public finding and financing, and the balance from private, philanthropic support. So far, more than $8 million has been raised and Community Servings aims to raise $10 million by September 2019, when the new “food campus” would open.
To reach this ambitious goal, we invite you to participate in the Food is the Foundation Campaign for Community Servings and help us change the way America feeds those battling critical and chronic illnesses. Learn more about the expansion or donate.
