Food banks are facing a food crisis. A majority of the more than 200 food banks in the Feeding America network serving every county in the country, which Mountaineer Food Bank is part of, have reported steady or increased demand for food since June 2021.

This food crisis looms at the confluence of decreasing donations and continued rising food prices that strain the Feeding America network’s ability to serve families across the U.S. The stark reality is Mountaineer Food Bank may not have the resources to serve all of the people in the 48 West Virginia counties who seek our help.

Caitlin Cook serves as Director of Advocacy and Public Policy for Mountaineer Food Bank and is a member of City Council.
