Feeding America Emergency Radio-thon

 

Hi y’all! All of us here at the Lia show are teaming up with Feeding America and radio folks all across the country on Thursday April 30th for the Feeding America Emergency Radio-thon.

There is a desperate need for money to replenish supplies for the more than 200 regional food banks across America. Thousands of Americans are faced, for the first time, with having to wait in line to receive food. Those that are dependent on food banks for their nourishment and sustenance are in grave danger. Regional food banks across America are running at twice their capacity due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. There are amazing grocery chains who normally help as donors, but because the grocery supplies are not readily available, the foodbanks are low on supplies. Add to this the fact that donations are running far behind normal patterns due to terminations, furloughs and record highs in unemployment.

So by listening in on April 30th, and going to www.feedingamerica.com for more information, YOU can help in the fight against hunger in our nation. Donating as little as five dollars can help someone who has been affected by the pandemic.

Did you know that nearly 22 million children across the united states rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year? With schools closed due to the cornovirus outbreak, those children may lose their only source of food. Feeding America, the nations largest hunger relief organization, is committed to serving children and their families facing hunger in America. You can make sure that children get their meals by donating joining us and participating in a fundraiser that directly helps your community.

So go to  www.feedingamerica.com and listen in on Thursday April 30th to help in the fight against hunger!
