Since you’re able to read this, there’s a good chance that lots of people in this world are worse off than you are.

If you’ve never been hungry, and didn’t know where your next meal would come from, be thankful and consider yourself fortunate. Nearly one in 10 of America’s seniors live in poverty. And one in five children. In 2010, more than five million American households had to rely upon a food bank or food pantry.

We at SFBay.ca remember what it’s like to be hungry. As a kid, free lunches and food stamps only went so far.

Please join us in helping to support the San Francisco Food Bank all year-round with a generous donation using our unbelievably convenient and easy-to-use donation widget.
