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 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.
