Katrina food relief

Poppy Mom put this up the other day, and when I went to check them out today I was impressed.
America's Second Harvest is a charity that helps to organize food all over the country that would otherwise be thrown away, and makes sure it is distributed to food banks. With their normal donations 98% of their income goes to programs, with only 1% each for administration and advertising. With their Katrina donations however 100% will go to disaster relief efforts. Specifically, getting the over 10 food banks destroyed into new locations and their services back up and running. Food and clean water are the biggest needs at this time, and every dollar can feed four people.
