Chattanooga Area Food Bank stretches your dollars to feed more people

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

One in six Americans is food insecure, meaning a person misses at least one meal a day or is unsure where the next meal will come from. One in four children is food insecure.

The Chattanooga Area Food Bank serves 20,000 people every week who need help putting food on the table.

During this season of giving, consider making a cash donation to the Food Bank.  While they appreciate food donations, they can stretch your dollars farther to provide more meals for the food insecure in our community.

Through partnerships with generous corporate food producers and food brokers, the Food Bank receives donations and is able to purchase food at 10 times the average consumer's buying power.  For example, you can buy one pound of food with $1.00.  The Food Bank can take that same $1.00 and buy 10 pounds of food.

Whether you have a non-perishable food or a cash donation, we invite everyone to stop by our Share Your Christmas Food Drive on Friday, December 6, 2013 to make a donation benefiting the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.  We will be at First Tennessee Pavilion in Chattanooga, LifeCare Center in Cleveland and First Baptist Church in Dalton from 4:30am-6pm.

    If General Neyland were around today it's safe to say Lil Jon and "Turn Down for What" wouldn't be on his iPod, but you have to wonder if he'd be bobbing his head to the remix inside the stadium named after him. More
