approximaley 16 million children live in homes that lack the resources to provide nutritious meals on a regular basis, as a result they will struggle with hunger at some point during the year. Rates of food insecurity are substantially higher than the national average among households with incomes near or below the federal poverty line, among households with children headed by single parents (35.1% of female-headed households with children are food-insecure)
Hunger does not know, race, gender or age, and when I child goes without nutritious food to eat, the results can be disasterous!
I work as a nurse in a urban elemantary school of over 350 students, 75-85 % of my students receive free or reduced meals (breakfast & lunch) while in school, but at ome and on the weekend, many of them do not have access to healthy nutritious meals. My goal is to be able to provide healthy meals for them for the weekends.
