The Swinerton Foundation announced a $170,000 commitment on March 26 to support food banks on the front lines responding to COVID-19. The money will be distributed in a series of $10,000 grants to community food banks in 17 cities across the United States.

The organizations, though different, share an overarching goal: providing access to food for undeserved populations – a mission taking on even greater urgency in response to the novel coronavirus.

  • Feeding San Diego,
  • Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services,
  • Central Texas Food Bank,
  • North Texas Food Bank,
  • Hawaii Foodbank,
