Bezos recently announced that he’s sending a $100 million gift to the non-profit organization Feeding America to help replenish its national network of food banks and pantries … with the goal being “getting food to those countless families who need it.”

Food insecurity is a problem in the U.S. even during ordinary times, but “COVID-19 is amplifying that stress significantly,”Jeff says.

That’s because many non-profit food banks rely on donations of excess food from restaurants, and as you know … many restaurants are now closed.

Bezos says to make matters worse, the supply is dwindling … but demand is going up.

In these times this is what’s needed moving forward.
