Increased Demand on Food Banks

With uneasiness in the economy as of late there has been an increased demand for the services of food banks. According to America’s Second Harvest, a national hunger-relief organization, food banks are seeing a 15 to 20 percent increase in the number of people they serve compared to last year. In addition, food banks normally realize an increase in need for their services over the summer months when children are not in school receiving their daily school lunch. And so this is an important time of year to find and support an efficient food bank. Please review our list of 4 star rated food banks listed here. And if you want to keep your donation local use our Advanced Search to find a food bank in your local area to support.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
