Food-banks across the country have stated their warehouses are emptying-out at an unprecedented rate. Sources that once could be depended on to replenish those stocks are no longer donating food and other essentials. As supplies run dangerously low, many food-banks are warning their warehouse shelves will be empty in a few short weeks. Without federal assistance, they’ll be forced to shut-down.
Americans hit hardest by the lock-down measures, almost immediately turned to their local food-banks to help feed their families. As I reported earlier this week, lines of cars, some miles-long begin forming hours before food distribution begins.
With each passing day on lock-down, more and more people are willing to do just about anything to return to some sense of normalcy.
