Each day, many of us are pouring a bowl of cereal for breakfast, packing our lunches for work, our children's lunches for school, planning what to make for dinner, picking up a pint of ice cream for dessert, etc. We often take for granted the ease of accessibility we have, whether it be financially or physically, to acquire food for 3 main courses plus other snacking times throughout the day. Now, how many times do you open a fully stocked fridge and complain "I have nothing to eat!" - when in reality, there's a surplus of things that would provide nutritional value? Sadly, there is still a major hunger crisis in the United States today. Food insecurity is a serious issue across our nation, affecting approximately 48.1 million Americans in 2014 - 32.8 million of those being adults and 15.3 million being children. In fact, households with children reported food insecurity at a significantly higher rate than those without children (19 percent compared to 12 percent).
