Mission Food Hub fights food insecurity through COVID-19
Mission Food Hub teamed up with Foster Farms to provide food to local communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- This organization is a local nonprofit working to end hunger, and it connected with a national poultry company.

We featured the Founder of San Francisco Mission Food Hub Roberto Hernandez and the Vice President of Communications for Foster Farms Ira Brill.

The CANA-Carnaval San Francisco leadership is part of the Mission District's COVID-19 Latino Task Force for distributing food and assistance to individuals and families economically impacted by the forced closure of businesses.

DAY OF GIVING: Here's how to help in your community

The pandemic has proven to have significantly more devastating consequences on the Latino community from both a health and economic point of view.

Carnaval San Francisco will use 100% of your donation to support individuals and families in need with food assistance.

Thanks to Foster Farms, more than 96,000 pounds of donated turkey will help feed more than 120,000 individuals up and down the West Coast struggling with food insecurity, including more than 16,000 in the Bay Area.

The organization reports there is real hunger in the Mission from families unable to work or receive government support for weeks, and that they need food for seniors, disabled, and families with children.
