World Vision COVID-19 Farm to Families Food Box Program

Aug 26, 2020
Bethel Global Response

Bethel Global Response partnered with World Vision to become a regional distribution hub of boxes of fresh produce for those most financially impacted by the COVID-19 health pandemic. Northern California has some of the highest poverty rates in the state of California making child food scarcity real. BGR ramped up local efforts to mitigate domestic hunger. This initiative was a success thanks to the 10 partnering churches and organizations that then distributed these boxes all over northern California. This food relief reached an expanse of 15,000 square miles getting $255,000+ in value of fresh produce to almost 9,500 families serving 30,000 individuals.
