Giving Back: How You Can Make an Impact for Hunger Action Month
Did you know that every single community across America houses families that struggle with having access to food each day? Whether in rural towns or suburbs, more likely than not, a neighbor within your community struggles every day with putting meals on the table for their families.
A few staggering facts about hunger in America (from Feeding America):
- The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically increased the number of people experiencing food insecurity - over 42 million people.
- Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity in America, and even before the pandemic hit more than 10 million children were affected.
- Systemic racial injustice leads to African American, Latino, and Native American cultures suffering from food insecurity at much higher rates.
September is Hunger Action Month, and here at True Citrus we are working to pave the way for a better future for all. This is why we’ve partnered with Feeding America to take the necessary steps needed to support families and communities in need.
These are some easy ways to help support your community with access to good, healthy foods during Hunger Action Month.
