This week is AmeriCorps Week. Pablo W. Best and I, along with all the VISTAs in Illinois, were asked to do a project focusing on food security. We will be hosting a virtual food drive starting March 14 - March 21.
Feeding America understands hunger!
Feeding America is the leading domestic hunger relief organization, with network food banks serving every state. Feeding America’s nationwide network of over 200 food banks provides food and groceries to 33,500 food pantries, 4,500 soup kitchens and 3,600 emergency shelters. This extensive network helps feed 37 million Americans each year -- delivering over 3 billion pounds of food. Each week nearly 5.7 million people receive emergency food assistance from an agency served by a Feeding America member.
Will you support my virtual food drive today?
Every dollar you give to my virtual food drive helps provide EIGHT meals to people served by the Feeding America network. When was the last time your dollar bought eight of anything? I hope you'll agree: by coming together, we can help end hunger in America. Give as much as you can -- every bit counts!
