THE STORY:

Qology Direct is a leading marketing services company based in South Florida.  We selected Feeding South Florida for our annual fundraising campaign.  Hunger affects 1 in 6 individuals in the area, including 1 in 4 children.  Join us as we raise money for this much needed charity.  EVERY DOLLAR that you donate can provide for 7 POUNDS OF FOOD (6 MEALS). 

The amount you pay for your daily coffee fix can provide 30 MEALS to a hungry child.  The average restaurant check (for 2) can provide 240 MEALS for the hungry.  Please take a moment and help us raise money for those in need.

About Feeding South Florida:

In many ways, South Florida is a paradise, but for 1 in 6 individuals, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of rural societies or other countries, but the reality is much different:

• 871,920 South Floridians struggle with hunger
• 50% of the families we serve have at least one working adult
• 1 in 4 Children (287,650) in South Florida go to bed hungry
• 1 in 7 Older Adults (150,000) face the choice between paying rent, utilities,buying medication or putting food on the table

IMPACT OF HUNGER
A critical component of a high quality of life is good health, which starts with healthy eating. Unfortunately, food insecurity (low wages and lack of access to healthy and fresh food) is a significant barrier that prevents so many from living, working and playing in South Florida.

For children, lack of food and poor nutrition can lead to:
• Behavioral issues
• Low performance in school
• Impaired cognitive skills
• Immediate and long-term health complications: diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure

For older adults, lack of food and poor nutrition can lead to:
• Increased risk of heart disease, osteoporosis and kidney failure
• Memory loss
• Choosing between paying for vital healthcare or life-sustaining groceries

Florida ranks 12th in the United States for childhood food insecurity at an outstanding 27.6%.
