In the wake of floods, tornadoes, or hurricanes, GreaterGood.org reaches out to local food banks. These groups frequently provide storm victims with their first hot meals after a disaster strikes -- and are there for the long haul too as families clean up damaged homes.
Following the storms that flooded Louisiana this fall, GreaterGood.org gave more than $6,000 to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana.
"Funding from GreaterGood.org is helping us provide disaster relief to the areas impacted by Hurricane Isaac," said Natalie Jayroe, President and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. "While in the disaster response phase we incur significantly higher fuel costs to make these additional deliveries, and this funding will help keep our trucks on the road to provide assistance to families in these affected areas."
Jayroe added that the need remains high in their community: "Recovery does not end after the clean-up. The day-to-day challenges of rebuilding continue to add stress on families and their budgets."
In the wake of superstorm Sandy, GreaterGood.org will provide humanitarian aid to first responders and food banks dealing with the devasation on the East Coast.
