According to the USDA, hunger is a hard reality for 1 in 6 Americans. Nearly 49 million Americans are living in food insecurity, and among them are more than 16 million children.
Nearly 25% of children in our country live in households struggling to make ends meet and provide food for everyone. Many of these children wake up hungry, go to school hungry, and sleep hungry. This condition affects how these children grow up as productive citizens with the capacity to help alleviate their family’s situation. The lack of nutrition can stunt a child’s intellectual development and hinder a child’s ability to effectively interact with others.
We have the power to end hunger in the United States. If we all give our fair share and work together, we can end hunger in the country.
