In an effort to support food pantries throughout America, One Country Give, One Country’s charitable arm, will be donating 50,000 meals to different Feeding America affiliates across the nation over the next five weeks.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, unemployment numbers have climbed, food insecurity has steadily increased and according to Feeding America, more than 50 million people may face hunger because of the coronavirus, including a potential of 17 million children.
As the largest charitable food assistance network with 200 food banks and 60,000 food partners across the U.S., Feeding America is continuing to ensure that everyone has the food they need while the pandemic surges on.
Every community in the country, both rural and suburban, is home to families who are struggling with food insecurity and because of this, One Country Give will be donating 10,000 meals each week to a different food bank in a different city.
We'll be announcing where we’ll be giving to each week and how you can help in your own community on our social media accounts (@onecountry) as well as with a new post here on Inside 1C, so be sure you’re following along to take part in this journey!
