Every dollar you contribute to Plenty! helps feed hungry neighbors in Floyd County, Virginia.
Here's what Plenty! accomplished in 2014:
Plenty! is experiencing an unprecedented increase in requests for food; 2014 Food Bank use doubled over 2013, and 2015 numbers continue to rise the same way. We supplement our Food Bank by delivering fresh produce to neighbors without transportation, and sending bags of produce home for preschool families. We are challenged to meet the need for healthy food.
In 2014, the Floyd County Humane Society donated 4,579 pounds of dog and cat food to Plenty!, about 18,000 meals. Pet food is at the Food Bank, and delivered on Portable produce routes. The Humane Society and Plenty! understand the emotional benefit when people can feed and keep their pets. There is the community benefit: if people can keep their pets, fewer animals end up at the animal shelter.
