ABOUT HCC?S FOOD PANTRIES
During the 2023 program year, HCC?s three food pantries served nearly 10,000 unique individuals and distributed well over two million pounds of food at an estimated value of over four million dollars. More than half of those using HCC?s food pantries are children and older adults. In addition, the pantries? backpack program provides weekend meals for children, with an average of 11,000 meals provided for students in Lyon County schools each month during school year 2022.
HCC Deputy Director Lisa Selmi explains that the numbers of those in need are going up and ?everyone is feeling the crunch. With the rising cost of food and gas and the recent post-COVID rollback of SNAP benefits, we?re seeing an increase in the number of people needing help putting food on the table. This annual golf fundraiser is very helpful and we are grateful to Dayton Valley Golf Club.?
