According to the United States Department of Agriculture, approximately 14 to 15% of households in this country experience some level of food insecurity. This isn’t an abstraction; hunger is something that impacts your friends and neighbors. Luckily, we have many organizations working to combat food insecurity in our communities.
The Northern Lehigh Food Bank, located in Emerald, is one resource for people who might be struggling. The food bank does rely on volunteers and donations however, so we want to do our part and remind you guys that our 3rd Annual Blue Mountain Blowout flea market fundraiser for the food bank is coming up on September 6 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The fundraiser is held in our office parking lot at 4685 Lehigh Drive in Walnutport. We’ve gotten so much support in the past and look forward to another great event this year.
We still have vendor spots open. If you would like to participate, it’s only a $10 fee that we donate directly to the food bank. If interested, give me a call at 610-767-9600.
