Food insecurity is defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for every person in a household to live a healthy life. According to the USDA, more than 34 million people, including 9 million children experience food insecurity in the United States.
Food banks and pantries across the country are dedicated to feeding families in their local communities. Many of these organizations rely on donations from community members to help keep the shelves stocked to help provide for those in need.
Those who are financially sound can easily underestimate hunger in the nation and their own communities. Organizing a food drive, even once a year is a great opportunity to bring awareness to the problem and help in building up your local food bank’s inventory.
Local food banks are open to all donations but, if possible, food items with nutritional density are the best option. In many cases, the most affordable options for those with food insecurities, aren’t the healthiest and don’t provide the nutrition necessary to stay full and physically well. Here are some of the best items that you can donate to help.
