Donate to Your Local Food BankDid you know that roughly 7 million seniors – in the U.S. live in food-insecure households? This week consider donating food or your time to a local food bank and helping curb this unacceptable crisis.
It may be hard to believe, but one-sixth of the United States lives with the constant worry of putting food on the table. It’s a problem that has only worsened over the past several decades – with more people than ever faced with not having enough to eat.
But there’s good news: you can help.
Donating or volunteering at a local food bank or soup kitchen can make a difference to many people in your own community.
What should you donate? Here are a few items food banks typically need:
- Canned goods (fruit, vegetables, peanut butter, etc.)
- Brown rice
Find a food bank near you to get started. Let us know in the comments where you donated.
