We are working to improve this by shunning a light on the situation, volunteerism as well as charitable contributions to the people in need. From now through the end of the season, Helping Hungry Homes will supply just about a 1 million pounds of protein to the Feeding America network of food banks. This substantial gift is going to be converted directly into more than 800,000 meals for our neighbors in need. Who may not be showing it or are to afraid to talk about it.
