The disturbing truth is that one in seven adults and one in five children are living food-insecure lives right here in our community. Since hunger is invisible, there’s no dramatic photo that captures the ongoing misery. We’ve been working to fight hunger since 1977 and you can help.
As a 100% local, independent 501c3 corporation, SeaGate Food Bank receives no government funding. Our primary source of revenue is donations by companies, friends and community supporters. Each month we provide food for over 130,000 people. Our staff is only ten, so our administrative costs are less than 1%, meaning over 99% of your donation goes directly to support a SeaGate Food Bank program right here.
Your tax-deductible gift is essential to our continued mission.
$50 can feed a family of 4 for a week
$100 can feed a senior citizen for a month
$200 can buy “summertime” milk for 40 children
$500 can provide 40,000 pounds of food which we can distribute
Larger gifts will do much more.
SeaGate Food Bank does more than provide food, with programs and projects that offer clothing, education, training and basic necessities. We need your help and we’re always open to new ideas.
We are always pleased to accept Legacy Gifts via life insurance or a gift to SeaGate Food Bank in your Will or Trust. Contact Deb Vas, executive director, for more information at 419-244-6996.
