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.

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 >>
