Hunger is happening in our own back yards, on our watch.
An estimated 12.3 (roughly 38 Million people) percent of American households were food insecure at least some time during the year in 2016, meaning they lacked access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. That is essentially unchanged from 12.7 percent in 2015. The prevalence of very low food security also essentially unchanged, at 4.9 percent in 2016 and 5.0 percent in 2015.Source:
It's time to make change happen.
According to Feeding America, 1 in 7 people in the U.S. face hunger every year. The rates of hunger in children are even higher, with about 1 in 5 lacking proper access to food at some point during the year.
16.2 million children, live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis.
As a result, about 1 in 5 children go hungry at some point during the year.
No one should go hungry, especially our children.

Roughly 40 percent of all produce in the United States is thrown away—some 60 million tons (or $165 billion = Enough to feed 25 Million people) worth of produce annually, an amount constituting “one third of all foodstuffs.” Wasted food is also the single biggest occupant in American landfills, the Environmental Protection Agency has found.
