More Americans are going hungry

Food banks see up to a 20 per cent increase in volume over 2007. Gardeners are asked to grow extra produce to feed the hungry and extra donations are needed.

Second Harvest is one of my own favorite charities because I remember the years when I needed to make use of foodbanks. Salvation Army also helped me out more than once.

Think of the vegetarians if you donate actual canned goods at a drop off and put in some vegetarian friendly soups and protein sources.
