Food Banks
     The first food bank opened in the late 1960s.  It was called St. Mary’s Food Bank, and it was established by John van Hengel, a retired businessman.  The idea came to him when he was talking to a woman who was struggling to feed her family.  She told him she often rummaged through grocery store dumpsters to find food to feed her children.  She said that often the food the grocery stores threw out was still perfectly good to eat.  She wondered why that food wasn't stored somewhere — like money is stored in a bank — for people like her to pick up when they needed it.   
     In St. Mary’s Food Bank's initial year, the team of volunteers distributed 275,000 pounds of food to people in need.  Soon people in other states became aware of the food bank’s success, and they started other food banks.   By 1977, there were food banks in 18 cities across the country.  In 1979,  Van Hengel organized a network of food banks called Second Harvest, which was later called America’s Second Harvest the Nation’s Food Bank Network.  In 2008, the name of the network was changed to Feeding America.  Though the name has changed, the goal has not, and for nearly four decades, this network of food banks has responded to the hunger crisis in America by providing food to people in need.  
 
     Today, Feeding America is a network of 200 food banks across the country.  It is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Every year, these food banks feed 46.5 million people, including twelve million children and seven million seniors.
