Who We Are

We have all seen the ads on T.V. The images of starving African children are heartbreaking, and I can’t help but picture my own children in those ads. The thought makes me shudder, but unfortunately child hunger is a worldwide epidemic and can happen closer to home than most of us want to believe. Hunger affects the lives of millions of children throughout the world every single day.
Close to 3.1 million children die from starvation every single year. These numbers are highest in Africa, with close to 90 African children for every 1000 births dying of hunger. Even in more developed countries, hungry children number in the millions. In 2014, 15.3 million American children lived in households that could not afford basic food items.

The statistics are alarming. You can learn more about child hunger at websites such as Feeding America (http://www.feedingamerica.org/hunger-in-america/impact-of-hunger/child-hunger/child-hunger-fact-sheet.html) and the World Hunger Education Service (http://www.worldhunger.org/articles/Learn/child_hunger_facts.htm). There is no question that child hunger is a widespread and deadly epidemic. This is an epidemic that we can, and must cure. The good news is that you can help!
