One in eight Americans — 42 million people — are said to be struggling with food insecurity. And while that number has been going down recently, hunger appears to be getting worse in some economically distressed areas, especially in rural communities. Food banks that serve these areas are also feeling the squeeze.
Team members at Apergy’s Windrock Inc have been doing their part collecting and delivering much-needed food to organizations such as Knoxville’s Mission of Hope. Last year because of the generosity of so many people, the Mission of Hope was able to help over 17,000 children and their families with food, clothes, toys and hygiene items.
