The TD Charitable Foundation Supports Food Pantries As Need Among Working Americans Increases
Recently, Feeding America reported that more than 25 million working Americans use food pantry services to receive a meal, and nearly three-fifths of this population seek food assistance on a monthly basis. With the influx of working Americans facing food insecurity, the grants will help support food pantries ensure that thousands are fed for the holiday season and the New Year.
"There are thousands of working Americans who can't afford to pay their rent and buy groceries, so they forfeit food," said Elizabeth K. Warn, President of the TD Charitable Foundation and Senior Vice President of Community Relations for TD Bank. "The Foundation believes that it is our responsibility to support our communities, especially in times of need, so our partnership with food pantries across our footprint is extremely important."
