About 30% of Coloradans in a new poll say they can't afford regular meals, a rate that's tripled since the start of COVID-19. And hunger-fighting advocates are urging lawmakers to increase food assistance programs to help.
AARP in Kansas City is hosting a virtual support drive to help Harvesters - The Community Food Network fight hunger. If you are lucky enough to be able to work from home or shelter in place without losing income, you are among the fortunate. Some of our friends and neighbors are not as fortunate and may need food assistance for the first time.
Roughly two months after the first case of the coronavirus was reported in the United States, many older residents in Central Texas are finding their access to food limited and their social isolation worsened.
“You didn’t even know us, and you came and provided for us. We now live in paradise.” That message was delivered again and again during a late-April trip to Jamaica that took Food For The Poor donors from the beaches and rivers of Montego Bay to the inner-city gang garrisons of Kingston.
4/30 UPDATE: The 2018 Spring Food Drive is complete! Thank you to all of the volunteers and those who stopped at their respective locations to donate food to less-fortunate Marylanders. View some photos from the event on Twitter. We will have an update coming soon with the total poundage of food collected, so stay tuned!
