As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the U.S., a growing number of people are dealing with food insecurity. Research from the nonprofit Feeding America shows that 54 million people could experience hunger in 2020. In this post, Windermere Sun is presenting the increased need of food banks in various communities throughout 50 states of USA during 2020. This is a reminder of the need for all of us to try to do what we can to help our local food banks across the nation during the year of COVID-19.
