The #GiveHealthy food drive in our community. Part of a larger, online food movement that hopes to influence the way people donate to their local food bank.
#GiveHealthy is an organization that launched in 2017 and the goal is to revolutionize the typical food drive, by focusing on donations of healthy, nutritious food and emphasizing the fact that ‘hunger is a health issue.’
Food bank usage in the Tri-Region has increased 407% since 2008. Demand is steady in the summer months, while donations typically drop off. Forty percent of people helped by food banks are children.
You can make a donation to your local food bank with the link below.
