Believe or not, childhood hunger is real in America! Just check these key factual statistics about childhood hunger in our country:

  • 1 in 5 childcare in the US live in households without consistent access to adequate food;
  • 10 million children, nearly half of eligible children, do not receive free or reduced price school breakfast;
  • 3 out of 5 K-8 public school teachers report regularly seeing student coming to school hungry.

Make Breakfast Happen so Kids Can Be Hungry for More – is the slogan that HUNGER IS has created in partnership with the Safeway Foundation about expanding breakfast programs and providing children with a healthy start to their day.

The solution to end childhood hunger in America is really a partnership between the programs driven by the Hunger Is Campaign and the commitment of the community (us) to participate and contribute towards the same goal.  This morning, I went to Safeway of McLean, VA, one of the participating local retailers in area to support this campaign.  In my personal life, I lead a non-profit organization to help the local families in need to get the health, education and social services they need to sustain a dignified and honorable life just as we all deserve to have.

Because I truly believe in helping others, especially and more so children, our future, the future of our country, I urge you to participate in such a worthy cause.  Remember that giving to the community is priceless.  Here is how you can and where to help. Take a note.

Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
