When natural disasters, such as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods or earthquakes strike people are left behind in dire straits. Without homes, food, or other basic necessities, the communities affected need help immediately. Many food assistance programs will go to areas in need and do what they can to ensure that people can get a hot meal when everything else in their world is unknown. You can help by sending a kit of essential items to the groups who are on the ground doing all they can to help serve and support those in need.
During uncertain times, no one should be worried about where their next meal is coming from. Food assistance programs help those who are in need get the food that will help sustain them, organize food drives, and organize volunteers that work hard to support those in need on a local level; bringing a sense of relief to those they are supporting.
Food assistance programs may partner with local colleges, universities and restaurants to collect leftover food and then transport it to local pantries, soup kitchens to help feed the masses. This process helps to decrease food waste, while also providing meals to those in need. However, essential food programs need your help. Support those in need of a meal, by supplying food assistance programs with one of the packages below to help feed a person,a neighbor, a family, a member of your community. These packs help food programs in the long term as well, with reusable containers and tools that can be used over and over to support people.
These resources could also go to directly to soup kitchens, shelters and communities that are in need of helping those that are less fortunate. Help spread the love and the food!
