Feeding America (formerly America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network) is a network of more than 200 member food banks, supporting about 63,000 local charitable agencies operating more than 70,000 programs, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs, Kids Cafes, BackPack programs and senior centers. Each year, the Feeding America network provides assistance to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States, including more than 9 million children and nearly 3 million seniors.
Joining the Challenge just made sense to me. And it seems I am not alone: More than 75,000 other Americans have pledged to lose more than 2 million pounds. Check it out: www.pfpchallenge.com.
