How to Help Evansville Food Pantries

This morning’s Courier notes that cupboards are almost bare in several area food pantries. As of June 30, the Tri-State Food Bank has received 41% fewer commodities from the USDA, at the same time that donations from the food industry have also declined.  Unfortunately, local donations are also down by 9% this year.  When food pantries purchase food items, they, too are impacted by rising food prices. And demand for their services – from those who are hungry – has increased.

How can we help? Donate. Listed below are local food pantries and places you can donate to. Donations can either be monetary or shelf stable food items.

I am posting this now to help get information out. If you know of collection sites to help food banks or pantries, let me know so I can include them on updates.

Please share this with your friends, your church groups, your business networks, and other organizations you think could help us help one another during a long, hot, dry summer.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
