Here’s an interview we did with Doug Long of the Greater Berks Food Bank. They’re a central support hub serving more than 227 programs and charities throughout Berks and Schuylkill Counties and the Pottstown area of western Montgomery County by distributing more than 3.5 million pounds (not a typo!) of food annually.
It is incredbily sobering to remember how many people in Berks are living in poverty – around 40,000 – and to think about the sacrifices made by so many volunteers to keep an operation like the food bank up and running.
Please help spread the word about volunteering with the Greater Berks Food Bank. Call 610-926-5802 for more information.
