Placer Food Bank: This September, Let’s Stand Against Hunger
Calling on local people to support hunger relief efforts
ROSEVILLE, CA – Today in the United States it is estimated that nearly 40 million people are “food insecure,” a term used to describe people who have uncertain access to adequate food. It can affect anyone: children, single parents, families, the elderly, and people of all ages, genders, and genders in rural, urban, and suburban areas.
When we enlarge our area, the need becomes more apparent. According to census estimates, there are approximately 135,000 food insecure individuals living in Placer, El Dorado, and Nevada counties, the hilly area that makes up the communities. placer food bank serves. Last year, PFB distributed 8.1 million pounds of food across the region, which was divided into nearly 1.5 million meals. Simply put, that’s a lot of food and yet the need is still pretty great.
Feeding Action Against Hunger Month in America
That’s why we honor Feeding Action Against Hunger Month in AmericaHe called on local people and businesses to do the same by stepping up hunger relief efforts. There are several ways to help:
● If you are an individual, sign up for a voluntary shift at a local food bank.
● Pledge a monthly donation to your favorite hunger relief organization.
● Make a one-time donation of $50 or $100 to show your support for Hunger Month.
It is also very useful when our supporters forward an email, share a post on social media, leave a comment or invite a friend to like pages for hunger relief organizations such as Placer Food Bank or Feeding America.
If you represent a business in the area, consider an opportunity for your office that gives your colleagues a chance to make an important impact, such as:
● Corporate fundraising campaign to engage your employees in generosity. Donations can be made at donate.placerfoodbank.org/event/donatefood.
● Team building through a series of volunteer events at a local food bank.
Lots of people have to make tough decisions between getting electricity, eating a healthy breakfast, taking medicine or taking care of the children, so let’s help ease the burden on these families and take a stand against hunger together. Our neighbors need us.
