Dear Friend,
35 million Americans don’t know from where their next meal will come — that’s one in eight Americans who are struggling with hunger. In the current economic climate we’re all feeling the pinch. And even though times are tight for many of us, there has never been a more important time to give. For many Americans job losses and home foreclosures have been truly life altering. This month, you can help us give hope to the millions of people affected by the economic crisis – donate online today!

Fill a Bowl, Feed America
This month, Feeding America is commencing our inaugural “Fill a Bowl, Feed America” campaign. The campaign is built on the idea that each time we fill a symbolic, virtual bowl, we provide the hungry with the opportunity to survive and even thrive. One in eight Americans is struggling with hunger — that’s 35 million people. You can help us fill their bowls with food, and their hearts and minds with hope.
Even a small donation can help provide many meals to the hungry. Every $1 donation to Feeding America provides 16 bowls of food to those in need. And now, with a special grant from Kraft Foods, every dollar you donate will be matched up to $200,000!
One bowl at a time, you can help end hunger – donate online today!

Food Bank Employee Lives and Breathes Disaster Relief
Since Donald Stagg became Director of Operations of the Southeast Texas Food Bank nine years ago, he has supported the food bank through many hurricanes. With each storm, lessons are learned and improvements made to enhance the food bank’s disaster-relief capabilities. By designing the food bank to also serve as a shelter, Donald can now stay overnight in times of emergency allowing him to address damage immediately and begin restoring operations as quickly as possible.
 
When Hurricane Ike hit in September, Donald slept at the food bank seven days a week to sustain disaster-relief efforts. His commitment has enabled the organization to accept truckloads of food 24 hours a day and maintain service to its agencies. “This is truly the most rewarding job I have ever had in my life, and I am happy to go to work every day,” said Donald.

How we work
 
November Spotlight:
“I’m hungry and so is my son. I have no cash, no food stamps and in about a week we have to leave where we are living. I’ve tried all the government agencies… but I KNOW there are people worse off than we are! There is always something we can do for someone else.”

Help us reach our goal to provide 14 million meals to families struggling with hunger this Thanksgiving.
