Feeding America responds to Hurricane Sandy

October 30, 2012 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

As Hurricane Sandy made landfall in the mid-Atlantic states yesterday, the Feeding America network was prepared and provided support to communities impacted by high winds, flooding and extended power outages. The national office hosted a call with its food bank members in affected areas to assess local needs yesterday afternoon and will continue to do so throughout the week.

They are currently helping coordinate food, water and disaster-relief support provided by donors such as Abbott Laboratories, Allstate, Kellogg’s and PepsiCo.

Second Harvest Heartland is a member of Feeding America, the national network of more than 200 food banks serving every state in the United States. Our thoughts go out to communities on the East coast, and we are honored to be a part of an emergency food network helping to ensure needs are met during the disaster.
