This past year, COVID-19 brought new awareness to hunger as families suffered record levels of economic hardship. In response, caring people everywhere contributed to a heroic effort of food relief on a massive scale.
This summer is now a critical time. As life returns to normal for many of us, too many children still face the painful consequences of food insecurity as vulnerable families continue to struggle.
Our experience of the pandemic must inspire us to take better care of our neighbors. As we recover, we can’t let hunger be normal again.
It’s worth trying to walk in someone else’s shoes — even if it just helps you appreciate how their challenges might be different. When the pressure’s on, it can be tough to make the right decisions, especially when your child’s wellbeing is at stake and there doesn’t seem to be many good options.Learn More
