ACAC Helps support West Chester Food Cupboard, West Chester, PA


My girlfriend Susan was kind enough to make this available for a re-blog. Please consider helping families in need and donate to your neighborhood food banks. :-)


ACAC LOGOACAC Fitness and Wellness Center is my favorite hang out and one of my passions is making sure that everyone has enough to eat.  So, I think it's fitting that ACAC is hosting a food drive to support the West Chester Food Cupboard. 

The West Chester Food Cupboard came into existence on March 1, 2009, one day after the Cares Food Network went out of business.  It is run by a small group of volunteers to keep a food cupboard within the borough to provide assistance for low income families.  Just last month, 333 families were served.  That's over 1100 people, the largest number of families ever.

They have seen about a 30% increase in the need for assistance while experiencing a 25% decrease in the level of donations.  Due to the budget crisis in Harrisburg, they currently have no state funds to purchase food and must rely solely on donations and a federal food program.

Great reminder.  It's so important to keep up the donations to our local food banks.

Chris, thank you. Very important, indeed. When the President increased some of the benefits he didn't realize it made a whole bunch of unsuspecting families ineligible for food stamps. The banks are seeing a surge of needy families.

Thanks for the reblog lovie!!  xxoo  Can't imagine looking at my sons and telling them I realize they are hungry, but that I just don't have any means to feed them.  Must feel beyond helpless.  We have an obligation to share.  I already have 4 or 5 bags of food delivered to my garage by one of my dear friends and neighbors!!  Yeah!

You are welcome, lovely. Susan, thank you for the reminder. It's very important we do the little we can. It can really mean a world of difference for someone who doesn't have what they need.
