Imagine coming home from school and having nothing to eat. The refrigerator is empty and the cupboards are bare. Kids tell us it feels scary.
Sadly, 1 in 3 local kids may not be getting enough to eat. And that really is scary.
Hunger can take an emotional toll on these kids as they worry about having enough food. They feel bad when their parents skip meals so they can eat. Hungry kids often struggle at school. They want to learn, but it's tough when their stomachs are growling and they can't concentrate.
Every child deserves the chance to have a healthy, productive life, and that starts with nutritious food. Hunger hurts, but it doesn't have to be like this.
Now imagine a hunger-free community where every child has the nutritious food they need to thrive. With your support, it's possible.
