Volunteer With Us
We can't do it without your help! Volunteers are crucial to the GCFB.
We need your help to make sure Congress does their part in addressing the need of struggling families and farmers during this time of inflation and uncertainty for many Americans – please reach out to your Members of Congress and let them know you support additional TEFAP funding in the upcoming spending bill.
Increase TEFAP Funding to Support Farmers and Food Banks
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to invest in and strengthen The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) in the FY2022 spending bill. By doing so, you will not only help to reduce the burden on the nation's network of food banks, but you will also offer relief to the nation's farming industry during this time of uncertainty. Food Banks, like the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, operate as non-profit food distribution centers for their local communities. Due to the challenges of the pandemic, food banks are purchasing more food now than ever before. This is not sustainable. I urge you to prioritize $900 million in funding for TEFAP food purchases in the FY2022 spending bill to ensure that food banks can continue meeting the need.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank works to ensure that everyone in our communities have the nutritious food they need every day.
