National Food Bank Week
October 12th - October 16th
National Food Bank Week during the second week of October is not only a week long food drive but a time to bring awareness to the narrow line between a full cupboard and empty one. It also honors the volunteers, donors, and the inspiring folks who make food banks possible.
Food banks across the country join forces during National Food Bank Week organizing fundraisers, marches, dinners and campaigns. Each is designed to remind us that today’s world produces enough food that not a one person should go hungry and yet around the world 805 million live with hunger on a daily basis.
