An article in the Benton County Daily Record on Dec 26th (, demonstrates the tremendous response that our communities are capable of when it comes to making a difference against hunger.

However, the size of the need continues to be larger than the size of the response. Without any actions, the expectation is that local shelters and food banks will begin to experience shortages the beginning of February.

Good Neighbor Food Drives are one way that each community can pull together to help cover this expected shortage and ensure that there is enough food for all of our neighbors.
