A Cause Worth Feeding For
According to FeedingAmerica.org, in 2011, 50.1 million Americans lived in food
insecure households. A household is defined as being food insecure when its occupants live in hunger or fear of starvation. In an effort to fight hunger, the Alameda County Community Food Bank collected and distributed an incredible 94,000 pounds of food in 2012 alone. But for many children who rely on school lunch programs, summer vacation can often mean the end of their only nutritious meal of the day. Good intentions, wishful thinking and candlelight vigils won’t help alleviate hunger, but food will.
And now is your chance to help those in need by supporting the Alameda County Community Food Bank with donations of non-perishable food items. Help out these kids and the millions of other hungry Americans by dropping off non-perishable items at the “Big Red” barrel located in the Dormy House starting this week. Donations will continue to be accepted through mid-August.
Let’s show the Bay Area how Stonebrae cares and gives back to the community!
