There is more than enough food in America to feed every man, woman and child. But according to the USDA, nearly 16 million children in the U.S. suffer from food insecurity - that's more than 1 in 5 kids in your community and across the country who may struggle to thrive and fall behind in school because they don't have enough to eat.
Along with seniors and the working poor, children are among the most vulnerable in uncertain economic times. With family budgets pushed to the limit, mothers and fathers are forced to make impossible choices each month. Food or rent? Rent or medical bills? Heat or medicine?
By showing your support for Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks, you are taking the first step in helping secure millions of meals and provide them to children and their families in need through local food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens. This simple act can alter the path a child takes in life.
We all have a role to play in making sure every child and family has enough to eat. Together, We Can Solve Hunger... and it starts with you. Pledge to help fight childhood hunger today.
