Food-insecure families have three times the national average of preventable diet-related illnesses.
In a country as prosperous as the United States, it can be hard to accept that there is rampant hunger and food-insecurity. No zip code is spared. Families who rely on food pantries and other emergency feeding sites struggle with 2.9 times the national average of preventable diet-related illnesses. Diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and depression are results of a poor diet due to lack of access to healthy fresh fruit, vegetables and organic proteins.
These families are forced to make difficult decisions every day, choosing between food and rent, medical, transportation and other pressing needs. 34% of our recipients are children and 14% are seniors.
