New numbers have just been released and as expected, the number of people lacking food continues to grow. At the food bank for which I’m board president, we look at each and every dollar closely and wonder what to do to make it stretch.
Volunteers obviously are essential to helping meeting growing need. Each volunteer hour represents dollars in offset labor costs. Most food banks simply would not be in business were it not for the tireless efforts of their volunteers.
Here’s a way you can honor your best volunteers: Nominate them as a Tyson Hunger All-Star. They’ll be recognized on this site, and each month we select one volunteer whose local Feeding America food bank will receive a truckload of Tyson products in his or her name.
So take a little time and honor your volunteers for the assets they truly are.
