Feed a Bunch

A true humanitarian film critic only posts the good stuff! Check out my favorite Video of the Week:

While not explicitly stated, cash donations go so much further than in-kind donations of canned food and allow food banks to purchase exactly what is needed, including perishables (fruits, vegetables, dairy, etc.) that are an important part of a healthy diet. A food bank can turn a $10 donation into as much as 100 pounds of food using their bulk purchasing power. The same $10 in the hands of an individual at a grocery store would purchase only about 5 pounds of food. For an idea of how far $10 can go in the DC area (USAID CIDI’s home base), the Capital Area Food Bank can provide 30 healthy meals to kids at risk of hunger for $10 through their Skip a Lunch Feed a Bunch summer campaign.
