Best Local cause, Best COVID-Related Community Support Group and Best Local Nonprofit: Food for People

Back in March of 2020, Food for People was struck a devastating blow when a sewer backup caused tens of thousands of dollars in food losses and damage to its main building just as the COVID-19 pandemic was hitting, leaving more and more community members facing food insecurity.

Even without a headquarters, the nonprofit, which serves 12,000 individuals a month through a network of 17 food pantries and other services, including child and senior nutrition programs, quickly stepped up to the challenge and met a surging need for its services amid COVID-19.

And the community noticed, with Journal readers naming Food for People not just Best Local Cause and Best Local Nonprofit but also Best COVID-related Community Support Group. Now, as Food for People begins undertaking an expansion of services and rebuilding the Eureka site, the nonprofit that has provided a safety net for so many over more than 40 years is itself in need of a helping hand.
