Talk About Hunger

… With Your Children

In the U.S. today, 15 million children face hunger. Right here in the Blue Ridge Region, 1 in 8 children is food insecure. Chances are, someone your child attends school with struggles to get enough to eat.

Just as hunger knows no age, neither does fighting it. We all have a role to play in solving hunger, whether old or young. Children can make a positive difference in the lives of other kids in need. It’s important to talk children about hunger, and inspire them to take action against it. Talk to the kids in your life about hunger. Encourage them to help donate, advocate or volunteer. Only when we all work together – young and old – can we focus on ending hunger, and make sure every child in our nation has the food they need to grow healthy and strong.
