I can’t not imagine the pain a parent feels when their children are hungry and they don’t know where the next meal is coming from. I feel very blessed to be able to provide for my children and other hungry children as well! One of the most important things to remember is our responsibility as humans is to take care of the less fortunate. There are so many easy things to do to make sure every child has a meal. You’ll feel good about helping and that child will be forever grateful.
Take a look at these sobering statistics:
More than one in five children in the U.S., including more than one in four Latino children, may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.
Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn.
ConAgra Foods is partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
