Hunger affects our community — and our future.

Children truly are the future of any community. They grow up to become the work force and form the social, political and religious fabric of society. Chronic hunger has devastating and lasting impact on kids and our community. Hungry kids suffer physically, educationally, developmentally, and socially. They lag behind their well-nourished peers in almost every way. They can never quite catch up—suffering the impacts of hunger even into adulthood. As a result, the community suffers too. We want to create a better today for these kids so we can help create a better future for them and all of us.
