Today, I’m super excited to be speaking with Michele Bart, Director of New Partnerships — Southwest, for Feeding America.
Highly rated by watchdog organizations like Charity Navigator and the Better Business Bureau, Feeding America is the United States’ largest domestic hunger-relief organization. With great challenges as well as audacious goals, their mission is to “feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.”
Listen in as Michele offers an insightful window into the shifting face of hunger across North America. We discuss how food insecurity has skyrocketed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, exactly how Feeding America is able to provide up to 10 meals for just $1, plus how we can all help in this crucial fight.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced food banks to get creative in their approaches to giving out food and collecting donations. Generous contributions are now more important than ever for individuals and families across North America.
