129,000 people a day going to this food bank?! That sounds astronomical. West Virginia is smaller than the borough I live in and our daily food bank client count is 90 to 100 people. I smell a rat here.

From their website:

“Facing Hunger Foodbank is a private, non-profit, charitable organization founded in 1983 and is incorporated in West Virginia. Formerly known as the Huntington Area Food Bank, the foodbank initially served Cabell and Wayne Counties. The need was so great across the region that the foodbank expanded its service area after just its first year of operation. The foodbank’s service area currently includes 248 agencies across 17 counties in West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southeastern Ohio.”

This organization apparently, like many, started as a simple foodbank 30 years ago and has morphed into a regional food distribution agency.

It is in Appalachia, a region that has historically been poor.

“I smell a rat here.”

If the food bank is open 14 hours a day, that’s 153 people a minute being served.
