The US Department of Agriculture estimates that on a low-cost meal plan you can feed one 4-5 year old child for a week for only $30.90.*  Recently, both of Trehab's two food banks in Susquehanna County have seen an increase in need, with Montrose in particular witnessing a rise in families with children. 

Currently, the two locations assist nearly 500 households a month.  At the same time, however, the agency has experienced a reduction in funding for this valuable resource.   

This is a sharp discrepancy- increased need with reduced funds.

We are asking for your help. Will you pledge to donate either food or funds?

Our goal is to raise $3,090, or its equivalent in food. This represents enough to feed 100 children at USDA's estimated weekly rate. (Note:  Funds will be used for general food bank support, not reserved just for children.)

What are you pledging?  Each pledge represents a commitment to donate food or funds toward our goal.   

Check out our wish list for the most needed food.  Food can be dropped off at either location, at any time the pantries are open.

If you do not have Facebook and/or would rather donate money, you can give through our website at:  www.trehab.org.  Select "food bank" from the "donation type" menu.

Thank you for helping us help those in need in Susquehanna County!
