March food drive is under way statewide for area food shelves
On a statewide basis in 2010, visits to food shelves on average increased by 14 percent.
Last year, Hubbard County Food Shelf distribution was up 36 percent, 182 tons of food given to households lacking sufficient funds to buy food.
While the bump is indicative of the economy, it also reflects a change in government regulations.
