Northfield Bank Foundation Supports Arm In Arm’s Hunger Prevention Program

Arm In Arm wishes to express gratitude to the Northfield Bank Foundation for supporting our Hunger Prevention program with a grant of $15,000. With this impactful funding, we are able to provide healthy food through 12,000 unduplicated pantry visits and deliveries in a 12-month period. This partnership has contributed to our efforts to extend our reach and increase our level of service to people who face food insecurity and barriers to good nutrition. The growing and sustained need for food since the onset of the pandemic has resulted in an average of 4,000 households per month in need of our Hunger Prevention services. This number has nearly doubled since pre-pandemic levels. Our ability to offer nutritious food and fresh produce to our clients has been greatly enhanced with Northfield Bank Foundation support. Together, we are caring for neighbors in need with the compassion, dignity, and respect that we all deserve.
