Food Banks

I overheard a conversation between one of the people who works in a local food banks and one of the extremely generous people who donates.

The person who works in the food bank said that there seemed to be less demand this year than in prior years.  That is great news if it is true.

I looked for independent verification.

According to the USDA, the number of clients on food stamps declined from 43,417,443 in October of 2016 to 41,321,480 in August of 2017 or a decline of approximately 5% in the past year.

You can look it up.
