More Than 46 Million People Rely on Food Banks in America

Food banks are non-profit organizations that collect and distribute food to hunger-relief charities. Food banks act as food storage and distribution depots for smaller front line agencies; and usually do not themselves give out food directly to people struggling with hunger.

Food banks in the U.S. are very diverse – from small operations serving people spread out across large rural areas to very large facilities that store and distribute many millions of pounds of food each year, and everything in between. A variety of factors impact how food banks work, from the size of the facility to the number of staff members.  But one thing all food banks have in common, is that they rely on donors and volunteers to carry out their day-to-day operations.

Recent studies show that about one in seven Americans – that’s more than 46 million people – rely on food aid just to get by.  And hunger affects people from all walks of life.  It’s a country-wide problem, that’s being fought on a local basis, through the assistance of food banks and hunger prevention programs – right in your own back yard.  SFE Energy is proud to be able to help.
