Demand Up but Inventories Down at Food Banks

My church purchases food from the Mid-South Food Bank, which we distribute to our neighbors in need two days each week and on Sunday.  This article describes the situation in the Washington, DC area, but it reflects trends nationally.

For more information on the work of Food Banks or to find one in your area, visit Feeding America, formerly America’s Second Harvest at http://feedingamerica.org/.

If you are in the Memphis area, you can find out about our Food Bank at http://www.midsouthfoodbank.org/.

If your congregation has a food pantry ministry, consider sharing your experiences here so more could learn.
