Due to the pandemic, Tenet Health is requesting monetary donations instead of the usual cereal boxes. With a donation equal to the average price of a box of cereal, the food bank says it can feed a family of four for two days. Covid-19 has caused extreme food shortages and created devastating circumstances for families struggling with hunger. SLO Food Bank distributed a record amount of food in 2020: 5.1 million pounds of food, a 54% increase from 2019’s levels.
