With the current economic issues and rising food costs, the need for food banks has never been more great. With this in mind, I’m profiling FeedingAmerica.org (formerly Second Harvest) as part three of my Martin Luther King Day of Service Series.
The web site is a centralized location that allows you to donate money, find volunteer opportunities and also find a food bank in your area.
This allows you to participate and help in multiple ways. If you can’t donate money, you can always drop off food items or volunteer.
Even with the new president and the new found hope in the country, there’s still going to be a need for this service in the near and mid future.
