PFOP Hosts Virtual Food Drive
Since the pandemic took root in March of 2020, the number of households experiencing food insecurity and hunger has increased dramatically, with an additional 17 million people in the United States at risk of food insecurity. That brings the total number of Americans without reliable access to food to 54 million people, or one in every six Americans.
Of those one in six, children and people of color are more heavily affected. As of April 2020, nearly 40% of Black and Latino families with children were struggling to put food on the table.
This holiday season we are hosting a virtual food drive, for the safety of all. We are raising funds for the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati, OH. By donating you can help Freestore Foodbank continue its mission of feeding our community's hungry during this unsettling time. $5 could buy 15 cans of soup. $10 could buy 14 boxes of oatmeal. $25 could buy 17 5-oz cans of tuna. $50 could buy 100 boxes of whole grain pasta. $100 could buy 80 18-oz jars of peanut butter.
Please donate here.
