In a nation where obesity is deemed an epidemic, sometimes it is hard to imagine that some people don’t know when they will get to eat another meal.  Hunger happens, it happens all around the world, and it even happens in your neighborhood, luckily there is something you can do about it.

feedthehungryFood pantries tie communities together, they allow people to have hope when times are tough, it lets them know that people care.  Many food pantries are associated with churches, mainly because from the beginning of recorded history people have donated to churches, and people have also gone to churches to ask for help; once upon a time the church was the center of a community literally and spiritually.  Times have changed a bit, but no matter what your religion or how close to town you live, helping and being helped still brings people together.

In addition to food, some pantries also take donation for other necessities such as clothing, household supplies, and most pantries know of resources where a person can take shelter.food-bank
