Feeding America® Furnishes Produce For Families In Distress With Support From Disney

CHICAGO, November 20: As component of its dedication to assist in forming healthier generations, The Walt Disney Company has made a contribution to Feeding America® to sustain endeavors to source more produce and augment the amount of nutritious meals furnished to children and families who require it most. The funds will be distributed to 30 Feeding America member food banks all through the U.S. operating produce programs to enhance access to nutritious foods. Last year, Feeding America obtained in excess of 1.8 billion pounds of fruits and vegetables and intends to furnish even more nourishing produce to families in need this year. "We know that access to nutritious food is essential for a healthy lifestyle. Yet many people across the country may not know where they will find their next meal and the pandemic further exacerbates this issue," observed Blake Thompson, Chief Supply Chain Officer at Feeding America. "We are grateful for Disney's continued support of Feeding America programs that help to provide much-needed produce to our neighbors in need." As the country's biggest domestic hunger-relief and food rescue organization, Feeding America is a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that furnishes food aid to over 40 million people yearly. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Feeding America anticipates that in excess of 50 million people could be food insecure in the United States this year, including 17 million children. In an exclusive look behind the scenes, ABC's 'Localish' documented and aired on its network the travel of produce from seedlings grown in the soil of California farms to its transportation at full maturation throughout the nation to a food bank in Illinois, to the logistics and operation endeavors guided by volunteers to distribute the fresh produce to families across the United States. Disney has sustained Feeding America's attempts to end hunger in the U.S. since 2012, furnishing considerable funding for the organization's produce programs and volunteer endeavors at member food banks. This year's funding will aid food banks furnish more fresh produce to kids and families facing hunger by removing obstacles to sourcing and distributing produce, for example building capacity by augmenting refrigeration and equipment at food banks or helping to store and distribute fresh produce within communities to people who need it most. Following is the list of grant recipient food banks below. Central Texas Food Bank – Austin, TX Foodshare – Bloomfield, CT Lowcountry Food Bank – Charleston, SC Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina – Charlotte, NC Greater Chicago Food Depository – Chicago, IL Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano – Concord, CA Montgomery County Food Bank – Conroe, TX Second Harvest Food Bank of Southeast North Carolina – Fayetteville, NC Treasure Coast Food Bank – Fort Pierce, FL Central California Food Bank – Fresno, CA Northern Illinois Food Bank – Geneva, IL Long Island Cares, Inc. – Hauppauge, NY Community Foodbank of New Jersey – Hillside, NJ Houston Food Bank – Houston, TX Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County – Irvine, CA Los Angeles Regional Food Bank – Los Angeles, CA Food Bank For New York City – New York, NY City Harvest – New York, NY Alameda County Community Food Bank – Oakland, CA Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida – Orlando, FL Food Share of Ventura County – Oxnard, CA Feeding South Florida – Pembroke Park, FL Philabundance – Philadelphia, PA Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina – Raleigh, NC Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino Counties – Riverside, CA San Francisco and Marin Food Banks – San Francisco, CA Second Harvest of Silicon Valley – San Jose, CA Redwood Empire Food Bank – Santa Rosa, CA Food Lifeline – Seattle, WA Capital Area Food Bank – Washington, DC Apart from funding produce operations, Disney commenced their Feed the Love campaign in March 2020, led by ABC and the other media networks, to help furnish access to nutritious food during the pandemic. This campaign continues to drive awareness of hunger relief endeavors while educating the public at large about how to seek and provide help.

Bengal boy from London tests positive for covid 19, roams freely before being detected with the virus

The bizarre way in which a student, the son of a bureaucrat of the state secretariat of West Bengal and a doctor, who returned from London and threw caution to the wind ignoring the directives of airport officials to undergo a test for covid 19 following routine screening, is alarming. The bureaucrat a woman of considerable influence instead of exhibiting the wisdom desired of her took her son along with her flaunting her official arrogance. She alongwith her husband and their freshly returned son from London moved freely in the city, visiting malls and restaurants thereby putting the lives of innocent people at risk. This only goes on to show the gross regard by the bureaucrat for prevailing laws that common people need to follow. This incident brings to the fore the tendency of person in power to act on their own sweet will knowing fully well that their might and money power would thwart any attempt to penalise them.The boy who tested positive for covid 19 and is presently quarantined at a state run health facility specially equipped to tackle such cases comes against the backdrop of a general sense of fear and uncertainty among the public at large.If such so called elite section of the society act irresponsibly then it is foolish to expect that the public at large would adhere to the instructions proclaimed by the government to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. Such acts should be condemned in the most stringent way and stern action taken against the people responsible for this vicious action so that the right message is sent to the society as a whole whole.

Bangalore no longer safe for women, assaults on women on the rise

The vicious attack on a thirty two year Bangalore resident by a number of waiters at a bar in the city is shocking indeed, considering the fact that the brutal assault was orchestrated by the waiters of a bar in the BTM locality of Bangalore as the lady protested when the goons tried to peep inside the washroom where she had gone to relieve herself. The heinous attack on the hapless lady bears testimony to the fact that Bangalore is no longer a safe place for women since those who venture at night are often regarded by the miscreants as soft targets for sexual abuse. The spiralling incidents of crimes against women in Bangalore is a matter of great concern and needs to be condemned in the most strongest of terms.Until a few years ago Bangalore was considered as a secure and safe place for women where they could roam about freely without any hindrance although a few stray cases of attacks on women were reported. The city cops too played a vital role in ensuring the safety of women on the roads. But a spate of violent incidents against hapless women by rogue elements in the city has raised serious doubts about the ability of the city police force to safeguard the interests of women. The thirty two year old Bangalore resident who was severely beaten up by the waiters of the bar at BTM locality received serious injuries on her eyes and the thrashing by the goons resulted in a hairline fracture in her cheek bone. Her male companion was also not spared and the force with which miscreants targetted him left him with a broken thumb. If such violent actions against women and the public at large continue unabated Bangalore is likely to be labelled as city of great notoriety. It is high time that the city police take firm action against the perpetrators of such horrific crimes so that such actions against vulnerable sections of the society are prevented in future.Unless and until the police are firm in dealing with such issues, violence against women will continue to rise and put more such women at risk of being assaulted and abused by elements whose social presence can endanger public life.
