CAN will pick up the donated bags as frequently as the barrels are filled. (Can you help make it every day for the whole drive?) The non-perishable goods in the bags will help provide basics for families and children served by the food bank -- our neighbors!
Hunger is a serious issue at any age, but children are especially vulnerable. Research shows that children who experience hunger:
- Are more likely to go to the hospital
- Are more likely to be overweight than children who eat three balanced meals a day
- Have trouble concentrating in school and therefore have less success academically
Thank you, Safeway! And thank YOU for helping make this food drive a success!
