The battle against hunger in America continues
What we are fighting - Hunger in America
Families under the poverty line are more likely to be food insecure. A food insecure household is a home that does not have access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. People affected don't know where their next meal is coming from and usually rely on the kindness of those who have donated to food banks. Food Havens are the only certainty that they have to fall back on for food.
