Nation’s Food Banks Suffer Shortages: Katrina Diverts Donations

A recent story in USA Today noted a dramatic decline in donations to Food Banks across the U.S. According to a study by America’s Second Harvest (the national network of food banks) the decline is linked to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Donations to Katrina are leaving food banks across the nation with bare shelves.

And in case the thought of the homeless leaves you picturing middle-aged men lined up in soup kitchens, Second Harvest notes that one in four people lined up for free meals is a child. Visit the Second Harvest website for how you can help.
