BENEFITING: Feeding America
EVENT DATE: Apr 08, 2011
For my birthday this year, I am asking friends and family to help me raise $250 for Feeding America, a great cause with a mission of ending hunger in America.
I found out through their "Map the Meal Gap" Project that hunger is a problem in every county in the U.S. In my own Bergen County, there are 89,100 people who are "food insecure", meaning they often don't have access to enough food and have to choose between healthy food and paying for housing or other basic needs.
For every dollar Feeding America gets, 7 meals are provided to hungry Americans. So, every dollar counts! Thanks for your support!
