State of Hunger: Record demand means more children, families need assistance
One of every five area households ate from an emergency food box at least once during the year. And, among those eating from food boxes were an average of more than 16,000 children a month.
“Clearly, we will need the community’s help to make sure that the most vulnerable people in Marion and Polk counties are receiving nutritious foods in sufficient quantities,” said Marion-Polk Food Share President & CEO Rick Gaupo.
