Poverty plays a big role in food insecurity as well. Does anyone know what this is?
What about statistics in your own state or the U.S. in general? What are the poverty rates? Do you know how many children go hungry every day in your city? What can or is being done to help our own people?
Food insecurity is having an empty cupboard and not knowing where your next meal is coming from.
The U.S. poverty rate is about 12%.
To find out about hunger in your city, please call a local soup kitchen or food bank -- like Loaves and Fishes -- to find out how many children are hungry and what the community is doing to help them.
