Thanks to two anonymous donors, monetary donations to the Roadrunner Food Bank will be matched up to $60,000 through June 30.
According to the food bank, people are still experiencing financial hardship as a result of the pandemic, a situation now exacerbated by inflation and rising food costs. Low-income families with small budgets are particularly vulnerable when it comes to unexpected expenses on top of the increased cost of food, fuel and housing.
