The world is facing huge challenges on many fronts, especially with a growing number of disasters, conflicts, and droughts.
These are disasters like the earthquake in Turkey that displaced over 3 million people. Like the wildfires in Chile that burned over 300,000 hectares. And, like the severe drought in the Horn of Africa that is putting 22 million people at risk of acute food insecurity.
Food bankers work in their communities to get food to those who need it most. They work in warehouses to sort through produce, drive trucks to get food to remote locations, and work with schools to get kids the nutrition they need.
Now, the demand for food is unbearably high and food banks need support to meet rising demand.
