Every third Sunday is DMARC Emergency Food Pantries Sunday.
Before the pandemic began, DMARC pantries were already operating at a 10% increase over 2019 levels. As the economic crisis surrounding the pandemic has worsened, pantry use has grown exponentially. March showed a 15% increase over last year, with at least one-fifth of those clients using the pantry for the first time.
