Why should we worry about hunger?
Because hunger isn’t just a concern, it is a growing epidemic.
Because food is human fuel — it fuels babies’ development, children’s brains, and our ability to function — even as adults.
Should families need to choose between paying bills and feeding their kids?
Should anyone have to make the choice between medicine and a loaf of bread?
Hunger can never be justified.
Food is a fundamental human right.
And it is unacceptable that in a nation of plenty so many go to bed hungry every night.
We may not be able to stop hunger now, but we have to take the steps needed to end it.
And by feeding the hungry, we feed the health of our communities.
