 Why Do We Need Your Help?

Hunger Facts

Food insecurity can have wide-ranging consequences on the physical and mental health of adults, including more vulnerable populations such as pregnant women and seniors.  Lack of access to a nutritious and adequate food supply has implications not only for the development of physical and mental disesase, but also behaviors and social skills.

Proper nutrition is also vital to the growth and development of children, and research indicates poor nutrition during the first years affects a child's capacity to learn - and any interruption in nutrition may have lastin effects.  Ensuring that our nation's children have adequate access to nutritious food is not only critical to their health and education, but is also vital to our nation's prosperity.
