Even in the world’s greatest food-producing nation, children and adults face poverty and hunger in every county across America.
According to Feeding America in their 2017 report, 41 million people struggle with hunger in the United States, including 13 million children and 5.6 million seniors and older adults. Food insecurity is a reality for our neighbors in the community in which we live and work. A household that is food insecure has limited access to enough food to support a healthy life.
You can make a difference for some of those that are in need. Tel Hai’s Annual Food Drive benefits the Twin Valley Food Bank and the Honey Brook Food Pantry and is currently under way through the end of March.
Please consider making a donation to the food pantries in our immediate area. Requested items include canned tuna, peanut butter, cereals, pasta, rice, canned fruits, canned vegetables, spaghetti sauce, soups, laundry detergent, dish soap, bar soap, paper towels, and toilet paper. Baskets for donation collections are located in the Garret Community Center lobby, Chapel lobby, StoneCroft lobby and Child Day Care Center.
Together we can make a difference in ending hunger. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
