Food insecurity is a harsh reality for many living in the Pacific Southwest during COVID-19. In Paradise, Calif., the local church decided to lend a hand to those in need of support. Paradise church Director of Development and Disaster Recovery Joelle Chinnock connected with North Valley Community Foundation in Chico, Calif. and learned the greatest need in the community was immediate grocery assistance.

In their first three weeks, 40 boxes were delivered.
