Food Bank Impact Report: Continued Response to Global Crisis
2021 led to more economic turmoil and food insecurity for communities already facing the ongoing public health crisis.
Today, food banks are at the center of the frontline response to the conflict in Ukraine, where they’re meeting urgent hunger and humanitarian needs. And as the effects of the war add to the burden on food systems, threatening to usher in a worldwide hunger crisis, food banks will continue to play a crucial role. They strengthen food systems before, during, and after disasters—and are preparing to face even sharper increases in demand for food relief in the coming months.
