Hunger Awareness

Each year, 9 million kids look to America's soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters for food. In fact, as many as one in every four people in a soup kitchen line is a child. And, as summer arrives and school lets out, this problem worsens.

In Fiscal Year 2003, 16.4 million children ate free or reduced price lunches. During the summer months the majority of these children (14.3 million) did not participate in a comparable summer program.*

Experts agree that hunger in America can be ended if it becomes a national priority. Our nation has the resources and the proven state and federally funded programs to end hunger. What's needed is the help of all citizens and the will to make a change.

This summer, get inspired, make the change and stop hunger in America today. The resources below will show you how to help.

*2003 numbers are still considered "preliminary" by the USDA.
