Sharon Weingarten chooses Feeding America to be the recipient of our donation this month.
As coronavirus cases rise, more people are seeking food assistance. Right now, 80 percent of food banks are serving more people than they were at the same time last year. And in many cases, our neighbors visiting food banks are visiting for the first time. Feeding America estimates that because of the pandemic, 50 million people could be at risk of hunger in 2020. Many people who’ve never wondered whether they could afford a holiday meal are realizing that this year will be different. On top of the stress the pandemic has caused, many of our neighbors are also facing hunger.
