MCCM Food Bank Need is Growing

Posted on by

Because of the Critical Need, the article following is reprinted from the August Newsletter:

The need for the services of the Marion County Community Ministries (MCCM) Food Bank is growing. In 2010 we distributed 3,759 boxes of food to 2,666 families in Marion County. In 2012 we distributed 6,179 boxes of food to 4,289 families. During the first six months of 2013 we are on a pace to exceed all previous years distributing 3,515 boxes to 2,491 families.

In 2009 we had approximately 1,000 families in our files and today we have more than 2,000 families who seek our services.

The cost to us of buying food is also up, not only in the price per box of food but also because we are distributing more boxes of food. Please note that in 2013 we have been able to reduce the cost per box by 24 cents. In 2013 we have held three Bonus Days events to provide additional food for our neighbors. Approximately 150,000 pounds of food for these three events was provided by the US Department of Agriculture, the Tennessee Food Assistance Program, and the Chattanooga Area Food Bank at no cost to MCCM.

The following table compares donations and food costs for the first six months of 2010 through 2013

The first six months of 2012 and 2013 show that donations have not kept pace with our expenditures for food. It should be noted that during the last half of each year donations of money and food drives increase and we expect that we will make up some of the deficit in the fall.

Figure 1 through Figure 4 shows the dramatic increase in activity for the food bank from 2013 to 2010. Detailed results are available on our website at http://mccmfbgn.org/gn/results.html.

Clearly we need your help if we are to continue to fight hunger in Marion County.

How can you help?

  • Pray for this ministry and for our neighbors who are hungry
  • Organize a food drive at your church, place of work, or organization
  • Donations of money – we buy food at a substantial discount and we do not pay sales tax
  • Spread the word about the food bank need for help
