The demand for local food banks is increasing due to soaring prices impacting lower-income families under President Joe Biden.

Food banks like Manna Food Center, Food for Others, and Capital Area Food Bank have experienced a significant rise in demand, distributing more food to families in need.

Soaring inflation has led to a higher percentage of people struggling to afford food, with many forced to find alternative ways to feed their families.

“We are seeing unprecedented demand,” Jackie DeCarlo, chief executive of Manna Food Center said.

“My son loves red meat,” one struggling father said.

“We cannot any longer afford it the way we used to. The economy’s not getting better for nobody, especially not for me.”

Polling shows that a majority of respondents view Biden’s economy as poor, with expenses rising and incomes failing to cover the extra costs.
