Newly poor swell lines at food banks nationwide

Demand at food banks across the country increased by 30 percent in 2008 from the previous year, according to a survey by Feeding America, which distributes more than two billion pounds of food every year.

A New York Times article on the study also said that while pantries usually see a drop in demand after the holiday season, many in upscale suburbs this year are experiencing the opposite. This is consistent with what JVA Consulting’s clients have told us.
