Erie Gives Results

This is the third year for Erie Gives and you gave again! This year donors gave over $1,400 and will help to pay for our Blizzard Bag Program - 8 lbs. of shelf stable food in case of an emergency.
Thanks to these generous donors, Metro-Erie Meals On Wheels can continue realizing its mission of providing hot-nutritious meals to home bound seniors and adults with disabilities. Thank you!

The Demographics of Hunger

The charity Feeding America surveyed its food banks (including our own Second Harvest Food Bank), revealing surprising details about the people who depend on them. 

29% are younger than 18
41% pursued degrees beyond high school
20% have a household member who has served in the military
34% are unemployed because they are disabled or retired
54% receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits
86% exhaust their monthly benefit within 3 weeks.
