ENDING CHILDHOOD HUNGER
Here's How At-risk Youth and Homeless Families Get Critical Food and Support Services
No child should go to bed hungry. Period.
No child should have to go to bed hungry. It’s a simple statement, but one that sadly rings true for far too many children in Arizona. According to recent estimates, 1 in 5 children in the state struggle with childhood hunger. That means that every week, thousands of children are going without the nutrition they need to thrive.
Our community-based outreaches are working to change that by providing meals for homeless, low-income and at-risk families. We specifically target the lowest-income neighborhoods, which are often the farthest away from food banks or other services. Through this work, we are helping thousands of children each year to have food they can depend on coming into their homes.
But we can’t do it alone. We need the support of our community to continue this vital work. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against childhood hunger.
Childhood hunger is a problem that impacts children all over the world. According to the World Food Programme, around 21,000 children die each day from hunger-related causes.
This is an unacceptable statistic, and something must be done to address the issue. Here in Arizona, 1 in 5 children struggle with childhood hunger. This is why our community based outreaches have made it their goal to End Childhood Hunger.
Each week, amazing volunteers take thousands of meals out to homeless, low income and at-risk families in Phoenix and surrounding cities. Our outreaches specifically target the lowest income neighborhoods that are the farthest away from food banks or other services. Through this work we are helping thousands of children each year to have food they can depend on coming into their homes. However, more needs to be done in order to address the issue of childhood hunger on a global scale.
We must continue to raise awareness about this issue and work together to find solutions that will make a real impact.
