“The need for food in our community remains high and many of our neighbors rely on Food Gatherers and our network of pantries and programs to make ends meet,” said Eileen Spring, President and CEO of Food Gatherers. “The pandemic has created a perfect storm of operational challenges and an increased need for blackboards and pantries everywhere.
“Even if the economy opens up again, we expect our heightened response will last for the next 18 to 24 months. Donations made during Rockin’s will provide nutritious food and meals to all of our community in need all year round. “
