News

We are still Feeding the Hungry

Good morning.

The good news is that despite the weather on Friday, we packaged over 150,000 meals for hungry children with some brave hardworking volunteers.

The unfortunate news is that we had planned on packaging 400,000 meals.

So we have added extra tables today and we are encouraging anyone that wants to come out to show up and bring your friends, family, small group, hockey team, Girl Scout troop, or anyone you know that wants to make a difference for the hungry.

Also, we are collecting food for your hungry neighbors so please don’t forget to bring in your food donations.

We are excited for a great two days.

Global Hunger

GLOBAL HUNGER: Almost 870 million people are chronically undernourished. The vast majority live in developing countries, where about 850 million people, or slightly fewer than 15 percent of the population, are estimated to be undernourished. (Source: FAO Report 2012)

CHILD HUNGER: Globally, an estimated 100 million children under-five years of age are underweight. 2.5 million children die every year from malnutrition. Among preschool-aged children, one in three suffers from a vitamin A deficiency. Half of pregnant women in developing countries suffer from iron deficiency anemia. Nearly 2 billion people are affected by inadequate levels of iodine, which can be easily fixed by adding iodine to table salt.
