Food Distribution during COVID-19
For many in South Asia and around the world, the greatest concern during lockdowns is being unable to pay for or access food. Our leaders in South Asia have been organizing safe food distribution.
To give perspective, in Myanmar it costs about $100 to feed a family of five for one month. In Nepal and India it’s about $50 per family. In Bangladesh it’s about $40.
On average, it costs $8-$20 to provide nutritious food to an individual for a full month. This is with all costs included - transportation, storage, safe distribution methods, etc.
Your gift of $100 can provide life saving food to between 5 and 12 people.
A gift of $1000 can help between 50-120 men, women, and children.
Your support of any amount makes a major impact in the hands of local leaders who are experienced in disaster relief, understand their local needs and resources, and are committed to helping the most vulnerable. Feeding the hungry is just one of the many ways they are responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

Did you know? The new CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act allows all taxpayers to take a charitable tax deduction of up to $300, even if you do not itemize. In South Asia, $300 (or any amount) goes incredibly far in the hands of our partners who are responding on the frontlines of this crisis.
For those who do itemize their deductions, the CARES Act allows for cash contributions to qualified charities, such as Harvest Bridge, to be deducted up to 100% of your adjusted gross income for the 2020 calendar year.
