ANNUAL REPORT 2012-13

Klamath-Lake Counties Food Bank
Action Statement

To Address Hunger By Providing Food To Emergency Food Assistance Programs And Support Other Non-Profit Agencies And Their Programs That Have A Positive Affect On The Lives Of Children And Adults In Klamath And Lake Counties.

The Klamath-Lake Counties Food Bank had another busy year. One in four households in Klamath and Lake Counties ate from a food box in this fiscal year. We also provided food to assist in the preparation of 485,000 meals that fed seniors, children, the disabled and homeless.

The economy over the last five years has forced many people to utilize charities to make ends meet. A good portion of these folks have never asked for assistance feeding their families. Lay-offs, work hours reduced and those on fixed incomes have found it harder to stretch their limited dollars. With the lack of employment available right now, we foresee more people looking for some help when unemployment benefits run out.

We’ve kept up with the demand because of all the wonderful local support we get from the private sector. When many people give a little, we ensure that when times are tough all of our eggs aren’t in just a few baskets. We have many eggs in many baskets.

We distributed about 29,000 pounds of food weekly in 2013. Monetary donations, food drives and volunteerism makes it work! In a small, rural community, every dime we can save other programs that are vital to the community, means better, more efficient services for all.

Thanks to the volunteers who make this program work. Their efforts, their time and passion ensure everyone who needs a little help can get it. More than 780 volunteers gave 24,000 hours of their valuable time to the food bank and our affiliate programs in 2012-13.
