Help us serve more fresh food this summer!
2020 was an unbelievably difficult and challenging year for most of us. Beginning on March 9, 2020, So What Else began a tremendous undertaking and started one of the most successful emergency hunger relief and support programs in the Greater Washington Area. Food was donated to us from partner organizations and local businesses without restriction and given to anyone in need. We have served approximately nine million meals from March 2020-March 2021.
Food is continuously being donated from every source imaginable. But, the warm summer months are fast approaching, and the SWE Team is in serious need of purchasing a refrigerated box truck to store perishable food arriving from multiple sources. The need for supplying food has only increased since the pandemic began.
So What Else is requesting donations in order to purchase a refrigerated truck to store perishables such as produce, eggs, dairy, poultry, and other products that need to be refrigerated during transportation in the upcoming summer months.
It is critical to have a refrigerated truck in order to continue to support children and families that are in dire need of food.
Your generous donation means the world to us and will continue to support our mission to help serve our community in the most efficient way possible.
Currently, SWE serves 68 community sites per week with a total of 110,000 meals a week directly to children and families. The refrigerated box truck costs approximately $60,000. SWE currently has $12,500 committed from a generous donor. Will you help us raise the remaining $47,500?
Love and gratitude,
The So What Else Team
