Right here in America, there are 16 million children struggling with hunger ? that?s the population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago combined. Hunger?s youngest victims are often invisible in the United States, but the reality is, hunger in America has no boundaries ? rural, urban and suburban ? and with 1 in 5 children unaware where their next meal is coming from, one of these children could be your own neighbor or even your child?s best friend. We’ve partnered with Unilever’s Project Sunlight to rally people across the country to ?Share A Meal to Help Turn the Tables on Child Hunger in America.?
The face of hunger is not what you’d expect. We are thrilled to introduce this brand new documentary about everyday families in America. These families are no different than any other, except they often struggle to put food on the table. We invite you to watch it and ultimately see the joy and hope that can come through sharing a meal with others in your community.
We know that this is an issue that can be seen in almost every neighborhood across the country, but it often goes unnoticed. This coming month, we will be working on our own Share a Meal project (you can look for it in November!), and we encourage you to get involved in your own way!
You can learn how you can run your own Share a Meal project, give to Feeding America, find other ways to get involved or read more Share a Meal stories on the Project Sunlight site.
