Why Food Banks?
Food Banks generally make great use of every dollar donated to their cause. Where for many charitable organizations the vast majority of funds are eaten up by salaries and admin fees, food banks tend to turn every dollar into MORE than an individual could have contributed themselves.
Additionally, food banks are in dire need during this crisis. Not only is mass hoarding of food limiting the ability to obtain supplies, but in times of crisis, like now, many have stopped donating.
We challenge all our customers to support local causes during this hardship we face and to STOP hoarding supplies.
During the Spanish Flu in 1918, many people actually starved to death, due to hoarding and because no one would deliver food to them.
Additionally, many new families may be at risk and in need of assistance due to work-place shutdowns. Some businesses are paying their employee’s wages, and some government programs are assisting workers who are temporarily laid off, but this will not cover everyone.
Food banks may soon face a predicament, simultaneously they will see an influx in need, with a reduction in support.
