"I want to thank all of our donors and volunteers for supporting us during 2020. Because of you, we were able to serve more families than we ever have in the past. We saw an increase of 20% more families coming in for food than the previous year. We were also able to give out more food per family. We gave out 40% more food compared to 2019. We couldn't have done any of this without all of you. So thank you!
Now we don't know what 2021 has in store for us. But, we pledge to be here no matter what. Stay tuned for new and exciting programs and partnerships that we'll be undertaking and that we'll need your help on. On behalf of our 11,000 clients, our volunteers, our board, and our staff we thank you for helping us get through 2020 with grace and resilience. We look forward to this new year with renewed hope and service to those in need."
Thank You, Phil Alonso, IFM Executive Director

Poverty and Hunger in America & Nevada County
Poverty and hunger in America often go hand in hand, but poverty is not the ultimate determinant of food insecurity. People living above the poverty line are often at risk of hunger as well. Research demonstrates that unemployment, rather than poverty, is a better predictor of food insecurity among people living in the United States.
US Statistics on Poverty The most recent government statistics on poverty collected show that in 2015,
43.1 million people (13.5 percent) were in poverty, including 14.5 million (20 percent) children under the age of 18.
42.2 million Americans lived in food-insecure households, including more than 13 million children.
14,000, or roughly 1 out 7 Nevada County residents live in food -insecure households
