Inflation, war, the COVID pandemic, and climate change are impacting food insecurity around the globe and across the US. According to the US Department of Agriculture, over 33.8 million people in the USA live in food-insecure households, meaning these households were uncertain of having or unable to acquire enough food to meet the needs of all their members.
BAPS Charities organized a food drive in Portland, OR on November 20, 2022. Over 500 pounds of canned and dry food items were collected and donated to the Oregon Food Bank – SVDP St Anthony (Tigard).
BAPS Charities thanks all volunteers and donors of diverse ages and backgrounds who came together to help the community.
