We need to fight child hunger! Did you know that 1 in 5 children don’t know where their next meal will come from throughout the year? That means 15 million children are lacking proper nutrition they need to thrive. A balanced and nutritious diet is crucial for a child’s physical growth and brain development to help them reach their full potentiality. The amount of children that live in poverty is staggering as is. Sadly, child poverty is continuously on the rise.
This is Why We Need to Fight Child Hunger in America
Poverty, homelessness, and hunger have always tugged at my heartstrings, especially when children are involved. Our children are our future. The least thing we can do for them is help them reach their full potential. Break the cycle of poverty by giving back. That’s why my heart jumps in joy and happiness when there are programs out there like Child Hunger Ends Here. Child Hunger Ends Here are striving to make a difference in childrens’ lives by campaigning to eradicate hunger.
