The Face of Hunger Today

All people deserve to eat, regardless of the choices they’ve made or the hands they were dealt in life. No one can grow, maintain good health or reach their full potential if they are hungry. A surprising number of our neighbors are doing something they never imagined – visiting one of our agency partner’s food shelves for the first time in their lives.
