The holiday season is now upon us. For many, Thanksgiving is a time that friends and family gather around the dinner table for a much anticipated meal. At this time, many will reflect upon all of the things they are thankful for and think about how to give back to those who are less fortunate.
If you would like to help families who are facing food insecurity, you can visit http://www.feedingamerica.org/. At Feeding America’s website, enter your local zip code to find a food bank in your community. You can donate your time, food or money online or over the phone at 1-800-711-2303, option 8.
Every dollar that is donated provides 16 meals or 20 pounds of food.
During times of economic insecurity when money is tight, the gifts are even more necessary as there are more people who don’t know where their next meal will come from. So as we enter the season of giving, this can be an opportunity to have a dollar go a long way!
