First, the good news. The number of people needing food support has declined from a peak of 60 Million during the pandemic to 53 Million. Now, the bad news…this is 13 Million people more than needed assistance before the pandemic – nearly 33% more.
What does this mean for food banks and pantries? They need a lot of help. A LOT OF HELP!
