carrot agricultural food organic soil conservation Food Banks have a long history of channeling food efficiently between the haves and the have-nots in local communities. If you have food from special events, food drives or inventory that could be used to help alleviate local hunger in your community, consider contacting your local food bank to see how you can help them. The Los Angeles Food Bank states on their website "For every $1 donated, we distriute $7 worth of food and product". That's efficient!
