Help Your Community Achieve Year-round Food Security!

Your DGB for today is to help your community achieve year-round food security.

Like many people, you’ve probably participated in a holiday season food drive. It’s heartwarming and gratifying to see donations of food piling up in barrels in workplaces, markets and schools, and we encourage you to participate in these drives as you are able. But hunger is a year-round problem and often donations steeply decline when they are needed most, such as in late winter when the holiday season ends and in summer when children are out of school and are not able to participate in school lunch programs. Today we ask that you mark a date on your calendar in 90 days (or six months, or even quarterly) to donate to a food bank as donations begin to decline.

Happy Thanksgiving from DGB!
