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.

[248 agencies]

I was wondering if 129 locations served 1,000 per day.

By those numbers, that’s an average of about 520+ people per day x 248.

And I’ve said before, I pull up to the convenience store and there are guys driving $40,000 and $50,000+ vehicles with $2,000 to $4,000 worth of rims.

And I wonder, where did all that money come from?

Don’t tell me, let me guess...
