Hunger

In 2019, US government data showed poverty and hunger rates reached new lows, despite 34 million (10.5%) still living below the poverty line. Roughly 11.1% of households are food insecure, struggling to put food on the table. Glaringly, the data does not reflect the ongoing recession, fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic. With millions currently unable to work due to restrictions and recession, hardship has skyrocketed in 2020. More than 29 million adults now live with food insecurity. The rate is twice as high for many minority households.

COVID Impact

"For millions of American families, the COVID-19 pandemic has wiped away the gains we have made. It has exposed how fragile the economy truly is, while the pandemic shows no signs of retreating," said Amelia Kegan, FCNL legislative director for domestic policy. "The data demonstrates the vital role federal anti-poverty programs play in ensuring low-income Americans can meet their basic needs."

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporations themselves are experiencing hardship and making cuts and lay-offs, but still they are the most prepared segment of our society to offer aid and make a difference for families, adults, and children-in-need. With help from solutions like GyvLink, businesses can have a positive impact, and with GyvLink, that greater positive impact can come while using fewer resources to achieve it.

It's Harsher after the Holidays

The Food Pantries for the Capital District (FPCD), a coalition of more than 65 food pantries in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties of NY, has partnered with GyvLink to fight hunger and poverty in the Capital Region. As typical holiday food drives come to a close, we are initiating a new winter campaign, "Harsher After the Holidays" - a drive to support food pantries served by FPCD and the unprecedented number of individuals and families facing food insecurity and poverty conditions. The drive will seek donations of food and other essential items such as personal hygiene supplies, diapers, cleaning supplies and other household items. This collaboration hopes to save thousands from hunger and poverty and provide essential items in the Capital Region during the post-holiday period and beyond.
