The Rising Cost of Food is Worsening Hunger in the US
Skyrocketing food prices have made it harder for families facing hunger to access enough to eat and have strained food banks’ ability to continue supporting our neighbors in need. Fortunately, you can take action to put more food on more tables.
It costs families 10% more to buy groceries right now, forcing many of our neighbors to make impossible decisions between paying for groceries and other necessities like rent and medication.
Arkansas Foodbank is not immune to rising prices. While we are already facing sustained, unprecedented need for food, every aspect of our operations is seeing significant cost spikes, from purchasing to transporting food.
You have an opportunity to put food on the tables of those who need it the most. Donate today. $1 is enough to provide food for 5 meals to our neighbors.
