Interfaith Outreach plans for Prevent Hunger Month
March is Prevent Hunger Month for Plymouth’s Interfaith Outreach, and they’re asking for your help to make sure people in our area have enough to eat. The group’s food shelf wants to raise $200,000 and collect 100,000 pounds of food by the end of March. That’s the same goal they met last year, and they say with enough help, they can do it again.
Interfaith Outreach says they buy $9 worth of food for every $1 that’s donated. Workers say that’s important because the need for hunger relief is growing.
“We’re seeing an increased need in the community. Last year more people throughout the state visited food shelves than any time in our history, in our state,” says Lani Willis. “At this food shelf, we actually distributed one million pounds of food to neighbors in our community.”
Interfaith says it serves more than 4,000 people through its food shelf every year. If you’d like to help out, just go to their website.
