In the United States, there are more than 63,000 agencies that distribute 2.5 billion pounds of food to the hungry every year. There are lots of ways you can lend a hand and help make that job a little easier. Although helping out at a soup kitchen around the holidays is a thoughtful choice, food banks and local agencies helping hungry families are looking for enthusiastic volunteers 12 months a year. If you can drive a car, take an inventory, sort and container goods, design a Web site or make calls to solicit donations, your regional food bank, a local low-income day care center, group home, soup kitchen or senior care center will probably be able to take advantage of your special skills.
