Food insecurity is very real in this country for many, including drivers. People are turning to food banks as a way to put food on their tables. Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief and food rescue organization. They have seen a 30% increase in demand across their network of food banks. If you need help, can donate, or have time to volunteer, this is an amazing organization that has been helping Americans for more than 35 years.
