The state’s largest food bank collects, stores, and distributes food and related items to 400 nonprofit agencies and serves an estimated 2 million residents in 20 counties. This 36-month loan from the Community Relief Fund, which offered program-related investments to high-performance human-service organizations that were providing food, shelter, and other emergency services during the economic crisis, enables Harvest Hope to sustain its operations, which have been affected by a sharp spike in service demand and escalating expenses.
