The pandemic created a hunger crisis like the Philly area hasn't seen before

Food insecurity is a big problem in the US during normal times. Several months into the coronavirus pandemic, it's reached a level that is pretty hard to fathom. Tens of millions of people have lost their jobs, the future is unsure, and all of this has made the work of hunger relief organizations like Philabundance even more critical than usual. We wanted to know how Philabundance is dealing with an unprecedented crisis like this pandemic, so we asked Sara Hertz, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Philabundance to join the podcast to talk about what the last few months have been like, how bad the problem of food insecurity is right now, and the options people have if they need help, or if they want to help.
