P.E.R.C. is running low on food and is at an urgent level. Demand for food increases at the end of each month, so the organization is faced with a greater shortage in the next few days.
"Our food demand typically increases at the end of the month because many clients who receive food stamps, run out by the month's end, " said Michele Baier, Program Director of P.E.R.C. P.E.R.C. has seen a dramatic increase in
demand over the past year.
"We have already fed twice as many families as we fed last
year," said Michele.
