iStorage and Feeding America Teaming up for Thanksgiving
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
No other holiday is as centered around food as Thanksgiving. Many people have visions of gravy smothered turkey, cranberries, sweet potato casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie in mind for the November holiday. However, 34 million people face hunger in the United States, including more than 9 million children.
Hunger touches every community in the U.S., including your own. So how can people give back this holiday season? Thankfully, Feeding America remains at the front lines of battling food insecurity in America.
Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that provides food and services to people every year. As the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, Feeding America aims to end hunger for good, which is why National Storage Affiliates has partnered with them in 2022.
NSA Brands’ partnership with Feeding America helps provide 1.5 million meals* to individuals facing food insecurity in 2022. This means that your business with us at iStorage makes a positive impact.
But what else can be done to ease food insecurity this holiday season?
Here are four ways that Feeding America suggests that you can make a difference this Thanksgiving:
Host a virtual food drive with Team Feed
Help neighbors in need by hosting a virtual food drive with Team Feed. Virtual food drives allow Feeding America to turn every donated dollar into more meals than if you donated food you’d purchased at the store. Every $1 raised helps provide 10 meals.
Volunteer in your Community
Thanksgiving is a busy time for food banks and food pantries. Giving just a few hours of your time helps bring more meals to our neighbors.
Donate Thanksgiving Foods
Feeding America has a guide for donating food this Thanksgiving. Check it out by clicking the link below and help ease anxiety surrounding the holidays for families facing hunger.
Send a Thanksgiving Card
Make the holidays a bit brighter by offering a friendly Thanksgiving greeting to a family that is receiving food at a food bank.
No matter what you do this Thanksgiving, thank you for keeping in mind those who experience food insecurity. Even raising awareness about this national issue is a critical step in closing the hunger gap.
