Over 49 million Americans live in food insecure households (1). Some of these people go without, while some look to government or private run programs to gather food assistance.
The South County Assistance Network (SCAN) in Lothian, Maryland, is an organization of individuals from the faith and business community who work together to provide assistance to those in need. Among their services, SCAN provides a food bank for county residents. INO.com has pleasure to work in a rural area far outside of the city limits. While this seems like an odd place to conduct business, we are blessed to be surrounded by a small, tight-knit community.
Valentine’s Day is a perfect time for us to give a little love back to those in need in our local area. INO.com co-owners, Adam Hewison and David Maher, took a field-trip to the store to purchase some food bank staples and met with a few staff members at SCAN to drop off the goods.
Donating to a food bank is such a small gesture, but one that could greatly help your neighbors. If you are fortunate enough to be able to donate, here is a handy tool to help you find a local food bank.
Share a little extra love of your own this Valentine's Day!
