A food bank is a non-profit organization that collects and distributes food for individuals and families in need. They act as food storage and distribution locations for smaller agencies such as “food pantries,” which you may see going around directly helping feed the community. Their goal is to provide those with hunger a reliable resource to get some food, whether for the day or they can donate a sum amount for you to keep. Nobody deserves to feel the pain of hunger; if you require assistance getting some food, make sure to reach out to a food bank within the area, as they are more than willing to help you out!
