As a regular volunteer at a local food pantry for the last few years, I am very concerned about the food donations throughout the year. Some churches and organizations donate food for the pantry on a regular basis each month.
However, many people only support a food drive at Thanksgiving or Christmas. The various food pantries are in need of food throughout the year. The shelves at the pantry where I work are the barest in July and August. I wish people would please consider doing a food drive during the summer months. People are hungry throughout the year -- not just in November and December.
