Growing up, I was incredibly lucky that my family could count on having enough food on the table for my sister and me. Even if we had hit hard times, we could count on our community to help bridge the gap while we got back on our feet.
That kind of community support is a simple thing, but for hungry families it isn’t always there.
Today, for 1 in 6 Americans, hunger is a reality.
We all know how scary it can be to face a financial crisis. Losing your job, facing an unexpected health issues or finding your rent has unexpectedly gone up can leave many families struggling to pay the bills and keep food on the table.
Without a strong safety net to help in times of financial trouble, too many families could face an empty dinner table and hungry nights.
Hunger in America can seem staggering, but the truth is by working together, we can find real solutions to the problem, before any more of our friends or relatives have to go to bed hungry.
Together we can end hunger in America. Please, sign on today to help raise awareness about those in need and give a voice to families struggling with hunger.
Thank you for taking action,
