It is a chance to give back to the community (meet some of our "hidden national treasures") and make a difference in the lives of our elderly citizens. After a lifetime of work, many seniors are living on fixed incomes that often force them to choose between paying for basic necessities or buying groceries. Limited mobility and dependence on outside assistance makes seniors particularly vulnerable to hunger. 19.5% of seniors live in or at the poverty level.
Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank
Greensboro, NC 27406
Details: The Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank collects and redistributes good, edible food to as many as 110 people a day. This food, which would otherwise be discarded, comes from these sources: Surplus food: grocers, wholesalers, and gardeners; Prepared and perishable food: local restaurants and caterers. Greensboro Urban Ministry strives to fill the gap between individual income and government benefits by providing emergency food assistance through our Emergency Assistance Program. These food assistance bags include fruits and vegetables, grains, and protein, to help ensure that those receiving assistance are eating balanced nutritious meals. By helping to ebb the pains of hunger, recipients are provided with some peace of mind and the fortitude necessary to focus on other areas of crisis in their lives. While roughly 80% of the families and individuals receiving food assistance are financially stable outside of their food needs, nearly 20% of recipients are in need of additional assistance. For these people, their additional needs are identified and the Emergency Assistance Program assists them financially to help ensure that stability can be regained. Last year, the Food Bank received 1,192,863 pounds of food and provided 22,942 food assistance bags.
