Child Hunger is a harsh reality in America. Nearly 1 in 4 kids don’t know where there next meal is coming from. Children who are hungry may develop physical problems, such as slower growth and inhibited brain development; and illnesses including stomach aches, headaches, colds, ear infections, and fatigue. Lack of proper nourishment during significant periods of growth can impact a child’s behavior, cognitive skills and their ability to learn at the proper level.

Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Each year, the Feeding America network provides food to more than 37 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States, including more than 14 million children and nearly 3 million seniors.
Their network of more than 200 food banks serves all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, securing and distributing more than 2.5 billion pounds of food and grocery products annually. Those member food banks support approximately 63,000 local charitable agencies and 70,000 programs, which provide food directly to individuals and families in need.

I’m teaming up with ConAgra to host a Child Hunger Ends Here Neighborhood Rally this spring to raise money for Feeding America, which provides food to 37 million people every year. These rallies are being held all across America to help feed kids at risk of hunger and you can join or organize something for your own community.

Visit Child Hunger Ends Here for details and directions and help to turn a bake sale, church rummage sale, food drive, yard sale, school carnival, neighborhood picnic or other existing community event into a CHEH Neighborhood Rally.
Stay tuned over the next few weeks to find out how you can do more to help feed kids throughout America and in your own neighborhood.
