You mentioned the 66,000 lbs donated to the local Food Bank...
but that was 20% less than last year's 83,000 lbs. You also identified the high unemployment rate this year compared to previous years so it would make sense that fewer people are donating to the Food Banks; to compound the problem there is a greater demand on the Food Banks because the unemployed that used to donate while employed have become patrons; it becomes a snowball effect.
