Having volunteered with the Food Bank for over a decade now, I've definitely started to see trends and patterns. One of those patterns is that the food stored up in the warehouse gets low this time of year but of course the need for food in our community does not decrease over this time. In fact, given that the "safety net of school programs providing breakfast, lunch and snacks is gone" during the summer months, the need for food is stronger than ever. In response to that need, the Food Bank is trying to raise ½ million meals by August 31, "giving peace of mind to struggling families and filling the hearts and bellies of kids in our community." And you can help!
