National Food Bank Day is celebrated the first Friday of September to remind us that no one should experience hunger, food insecurity, or food shortages. Food banks in the US help 42 million men, women, and children who struggle with putting food on the table. Help out by making a donation or volunteering time at your local food bank!

In keeping with our core values of Care and Be Kind and Be a Steward, Ascent staff regularly support food banks in their communities. One example is the Sacramento Food Bank. Suzanne Enslow, Senior Associate, shares her thoughts in this short video about what we do to help there and why.
