1 in 7 Americans need Food Assistance programs
Although too many Americans the economy appears to be stronger now and more people are back at work the reality for many families is just the opposite. 1 in 7, over 14% or to put it another way over 50 million Americans are relying on assistance just to eat. Many individuals and families who were struck hard by the recession are simply being left behind. They are all turning to programs like The Quinn House in order to feed themselves and their families. The Quinn House staff and guests spend most of their work week fulfilling requests for food assistance. We would like to do more, to help more however we need more help from the community in the form of monetary donations and canned/non-perishable food drives.
