In 2009, 50.2 million Americans lived in “food insecure” households. In other words- during any given time period they were out of money, food, and forced to miss meals or seek assistance for food. That’s 33 million adults and 17.2 million children. Hunger is an epidemic that affects children, adults, and seniors in America every day.
June is National Hunger Awareness Month, and was created to help raise awareness of hunger in America. Feeding American families has become increasingly harder, demand (and need) for food has increased while there is less food surplus and fewer charitable dollars available.
