RESOLVE TO HELP
Every neighborhood is home to someone in need. In this season of giving, reach out to make a difference in your community.
Food insecurity is a large problem in big cities but can be even more challenging in rural and suburban communities that lack access to food pantries and meal sites. Ultimately, it’s the help from community members that allows food banks to give assistance. By volunteering at a local food bank or pantry, or donating food or funds, any individual can make an impact in their own hometown.
“Food banks are uniquely positioned to make the most of your financial donations,” says Michelle Book of the Food Bank of Iowa. “Because food is purchased in huge quantities, food banks can leverage even small donations into multiple meals. In our case, $1 provides four meals.”
