Beyond the Food Bank

Food First: Institute for Food & Development Policy

As food insecurity has increased in the United States the demand for food banks, pantries, and shelters has also developed and expanded. Although food banks are a vital emergency and safety net that keeps the hunger crisis at bay by providing food to people who would otherwise go hungry, they cannot address the root causes that perpetuate and exacerbate hunger in America today. Instead, our growing reliance on food banks may distract us from finding lasting solutions to the hunger crisis.
