Food Bank Stimulus


The Nation's food banks have received $100 million in funds per the economic stimulus bill that was signed earlier this year. This is welcome news for food banks that have seen a rise in those coming to them for assistance. Some surveys have found that demand is up 30% from last year. As more and more Americans find themselves unemployed, the need for food assistance is increasing. For a list of Charity Navigator 4 star rated Food Banks that you may want to support go here.
