Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?" Every year, on the MLK Jr. Day of Service, people across America come together to serve their neighbors and communities. 

This year, volunteers across the country answered this call to serve by giving their time at local Feeding America food banks. The results of these events are inspiring and serve as a reminder that is doesn't take a big commitment to make a big impact. 

Looking for ways to get involved in your own community? Take the first step by pledging to volunteer and connect with your local food bank for ways to get involved in your community.
