Food survey's show families struggling

Posted: Updated:

The results are in for a large-scale hunger survey for our area.

   With about 20,000 people using foodbanks in the Tri-Cities each month, Second harvest workers say they rely heavily on the surveys to guide them.

The director of SecondHharvest says it's the third annual client survey and 250 were completed.

In previous years she says it was struggling single moms and their children, or senior citizens mostly coming in, but this year results show it's two parent working families. We're told during this tough economy hunger is effecting a broader range of people.

The survey's asked food bank users about income, household size and education.
