While November and December are strong months for donations to food pantries, supplies start to run thin by spring. So in honor of Mother’s Day in May, please donate your favorite foods that remind you of mom and help Broward moms in need feed their families.
In Broward County:
- Approximately 8.3 percent of total households are led by a single mother
- 15 percent are food insecure, with 266,920 people not knowing where they will get their next meal
- 7 percent of children are food insecure, meaning 81,650 children go to bed hungry
According to FeedingAmerica.org, the frequency of clients’ visits to food pantries suggests that families no longer visit “emergency food” sources for temporary relief, but rely on food pantries as a supplemental food source. Many food pantries rely on the community's help to donate food to feed needy families.
Together we can take action to fight hunger in our community and help local moms feed their families.
