Needs to Rise for Food Assistance; Food Bank Needs Help
DAYTON -- Dayton is one of America's neediest cities when it comes to hunger and it's a distinction we would like to wipe out.
Several economic factors could trigger a greater need in the Miami Valley.
The Dayton Food Bank is preparing to feed more people with less money in the coming months.
The government shutdown affected day-to-day operations, like money for gas for the trucks.
Also, come November 1, 2013, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will be cutting their benefits for every household.
In 2009, under the Recovery Act, the government raised benefits for every household, but, that was only funded through the first of this year.
"It is going to put a lot of pressure on pantries to fill up that gap," said Lora Davenport, Communications Manager for Dayton Food Bank.
The food bank works with dozens of agencies around the area to stock pantry shelves for families in need.
One of those agencies filled up a truck load to take to their pantry to fill their shelves.
Ralph Warner is in charge of the food pantry at Stillwater Church in Trotwood.
"We come every Thursday to get food to stock our pantry up with the food bank," he said.
Warner said they serve around 350 households a month.
"It is always a good feeling for us to know we're doing good and helping someone in need," he said.
Davenport said they are preparing to meet the needs of more people and for the Thanksgiving and holiday season.
"We're looking to stock our shelves so we can stock up pantries in our area," she said.
The Dayton Food Bank is also in need of volunteers. Visit https://thefoodbankdayton.org for more information.
