just a brief post today.
daisy is doing a comments for cans drive. because of her and a few matching bloggers, for each comment she receives on this post, eleven cans will be donated to food banks throughout this country. i am matching comments and will be donating to my local food bank.
did you know that:
- one in three people served by the RI food bank is under 18?
- the food bank feeds 55,000 rhode islanders each month?
- that (^) represents a 50% increase from just two years ago?
- $0.91 of each dollar donated goes to programs and hunger-fighting initiatives?
- 76% of those served by the food bank live below the federal poverty level?
- the federal poverty level is $22,050 for a family of four in RI?
