Food Bank Needs Donations
"Donations as a whole have been very good, except they've not been able to keep pace with the demand," she explained." We were feeding, on average, about 75,000 people per month. We are now well over 80,000 and, if we had more food, it would be higher than that."
Despite that grim outlook, the food bank hopes to refill its warehouse by Thanksgiving so no one is hungry this holiday season.
"More than thankful, I feel very blessed to be given the privilege of being the bridge between the people that can help and the people that need help," said Kirkpatrick while adding that every dollar donated can generage up to 20 pounds of food.
