Your donation goes further on the Virtual Food Drive! Thanks to the Food Bank's wholesale purchasing power and efficient distribution model, a gift made here provides more food than through a traditional food drive —– doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can provide at the grocery store.
I've been inspired by all of the efforts towards helping those affected by Hurricane Sandy in our NY Metropolitan area. While many of us lost heat, power, hot water, etc., we shouldn't forget that many lost their lives and homes. Since I tend to be friends with wonderful generous people, I started this food drive in the hopes that you will all join me in helping those in need. Every penny helps so please donate! Reading the personal stories of loss and devastation reminds us all how fortunate we all are for this hurricane to have been just an inconvenience for most of us.
