A close friend in Iowa City just got this email from their local Community Food Bank yesterday. I have no doubt that that Food Banks across the state are in or near crisis. Remember that pandemic aid has ended and some people will not be able to handle that.
Do what you can to help your local Food Bank.
Thank You Very Much!
|It’s difficult to find words for the situation our community is in right now. We are so grateful to receive incredible support from our community, and we’re lucky to be surrounded by people that truly care about their neighbors. However, the current economic climate has created an urgent situation at our Food Bank.
Food and financial donations are both down, and our inventory is scarce. In January, we had 1,640 more visits to the Food Bank than the month prior. And with everyone’s financial situation being affected by inflation in the past year, in-kind donations decreased from almost 15,000 lbs. of food in December to just over 5,000 lbs. in February.
We are in need of Food Bank donations in order to keep our neighbors fed. We understand every budget shrank this year, but if you are able to help, we really need you right now.
