    Bay Area Food Bank Now Serves 500k Working-Poor As Demand "Doubles"

    Bay Area Food Bank Now Serves 500k Working-Poor As Demand "Doubles"

    Sat, 11/14/2020 - 21:00

    The virus pandemic is threatening another lost decade, similar to the Great Recession of 2007-2009, or even the Great Depression of the 1930s, for America's working poor.
    Widespread permanent job loss and the collapse of small and medium-sized enterprises have become a severe risk to the broader recovery - as the economic fallout from the virus-induced downturn could linger for years.
    Case in point, the San Francisco Bay Area has lost 350,000 jobs this year - leaving many households with food and housing insecurity problems ahead of the holiday season.
    Local news station KQED offers a sobering reminder of the economic devastation left behind from the virus - and one that will likely continue to intensify as virus cases explode to new highs, forcing state officials to reimpose new social distancing restrictions.
    KQED said, "food banks are racing to keep up with increased demand for food — and volunteers."
    One of the top food banks in the state, called Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, has "literally doubled the amount of food we're distributing," said CEO Leslie Bacho.
    Bacho continued: "We already serving a quarter-million people. Now we're serving a half million people."
    She said many of the folks picking up care packages at food banks across the Bay Area are coming for the first time. "This is a testament to how the pandemic-induced economic crisis is disproportionately impacting low-wage workers," she added.
    "We are seeing so many people who are already just living on the edge, having to then burn through their savings," Bacho said. "More than half the people we're serving now have never sought food assistance before."
    Someone named "Gabriel" sent Second Harvest of Silicon Valley a donation of around $1,300 - the letter Gabriel received from the food bank outlines the dire situation playing out in the Bay Area.




    With president-elect Joe Biden calling for 4 to 6-week lockdowns as coronavirus winter fast approaches, the jobless rate could soon start rising again as a double-dip recession could be nearing.
    Despite trillions of dollars in stimulus, mainly for corporate elites and capital markets - the hundreds of thousands of San Franciscans depended on local area food banks is absolutely disturbing.
    Readers may recall - Second Harvest has warned about nationwide food bank "meal shortages" by early Summer 2021.
    To sum up, America's socio-economic implosion is far from over as the second wave of the virus could result in a double-dip recession.

    Joe Biden Says Open Borders to Immigration / Amnesty / Refugee's 800% a year over current levels ~ yet you have unemployed People that have no food, no shelter and most no or low paying jobs; you think its ok, its just needy people; nope; its called the great replacement; they are replacing YOU with new citizens; you are being discarded; maybe it hasn't effected you yet; but it will. the food and the housing will go to them and you will pay for it... I got news for ya, it's not just the bay area, it's all over this country; people have been warning and warning for years and you did not listen .. welcome to your future

    We burn through OUR savings to pay for the disaster of Obamacare while we have 30 MILLION illegal aliens and visa overstays sucking the life out of our healthcare and school system!

    Biden had better not step foot in the White House. He needs to be locked up for life!
