Opinion: Food banks need ample support year-round

Valeria Torrealba, Opinion Editor of The University star, writes that food banks need year-round donations, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Torrealba cites an NPR podcast featuring Katherina Rosqueta of the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy, in which Rosqueta noted that monetary donations help buy food in bulk, adding that “the same $10 that you would spend to, say, get three cans of food, could actually buy retail value 20 times more food.”
