Food for Thought
Beth El Congregation is excited to present our new social action initiative
Food Insecurity means that “consistent access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources at times during the year.” (USDA)
Did you know there are 8 food pantries in the South Hills? Suburban poverty is a growing problem, and it exists in our back yard. In Allegheny County, nearly 1 in 7 people are facing food insecurity. Of these, over 43,000 are children. Almost 18,000 are senior citizens.
This initiative is not “just another food drive.” In fact, as you will see, this is anything but that. We have created a menu of projects that will hopefully have something that can interest everyone. We have listed just a few below—stay tuned for more information and more projects! Watch for exciting details here, as well as via email and Facebook updates. We hope you join us in our fight to combat food insecurity.
We need volunteers to help get our projects off the ground.
