Hunger in America is Growing
Many of us take having food on our plates for granted, but in the wake of COVID-19, unemployment has soared and food insecurity is on the rise. By the end of 2020 it is predicted that more than 50 million Americans may face hunger, including a potential 17 million children. That’s one in six American adults and one in four children - nearly a 50% increase from 2019. Sadly, COVID-19 has left many people one paycheck or medical bill away from hunger.
Together we can pull together to help make a difference…
Recognize the Face of Hunger…There are more facing hunger than you may realize, and no community is immune.
Educate Yourself…Buy, work, play and discard responsibly.
Waste Less Food…The next time you eat out, bring home half of your meal and eat it the next day. When you cook, make smaller portions. Eat everything you prepare, and shop with conservation instead of abundance in mind.
Rethink Your Food Choices…If we collectively eat less meat, there'll be more grain available for everyone.
Find Your Voice…By encouraging others to get involved in the fight against hunger, you help raise community awareness, and it benefits everyone.
Donate…money, time, goods and/or your expertise ($1 donation can provide seven meals to a hungry family).
Use Less Energy…Conserving fuel can help to keep food costs down.
Volunteer…Any way you can.
Every community in America is home to families who struggle with food insecurity, including rural and suburban communities.
Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal programs and need to rely on local food banks and other hunger relief organizations for support.
Kudos to everyone who can donate or volunteer with a food pantry or similar organization if they can.
