The Foundation has been well positioned to help local CF family in need since its inception.  During the long months of  the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been our privilege to support local families in new and unique ways. 

During the past year, we noticed an increase in requests for help purchasing groceries. We quickly learned that food insecurity had become the new reality for many CF families and we were motivated to come up with a solution.

We immediately dedicated funds to creating healthy bags of groceries to be distributed during clinic visits. We started purchasing fresh fruit from AJ Rinella Produce and gift cards for eggs and milk from Stewarts. We added non-perishable foods from our pantry shelves to make sure families had what they needed. 

We delivered our first bags of groceries to the AMC Pediatric CF Clinic in January and added the AMC Adult CF Clinic in February. The Foundation will continue to support local families through the COVID-19 pandemic.
