Give Food, Time & Money to Fight Hunger

January 17, 2012

In November and December we saw an outpouring of generosity from our community in the form of food and monetary donations. Now that the holidays are behind us and as we settle into the New Year, let us not forget that hunger is an issue we see year-round.

Families, children, seniors and individuals continue to struggle to put food on the table. The food insecurity rate in our 16-county service area is 16.3% and for children it is even higher at 28.8% – meaning individuals lack access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members.

Consider giving food, time or money to help fight hunger. Visit our website to see how you can get involved.
