As the holidays quickly approach, Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization, urges everyone to help the millions of Americans who are currently struggling to feed their families
"We ask everyone to pause at this time of celebration and reflection to consider these facts about hunger in our nation," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America:
"The issue of hunger is especially critical during the holiday season when public schools are closed and the need for emergency food is particularly acute. The United States Department of Agriculture reports that nearly 49 million Americans are facing hunger. Of those, more than 16 million are children," Escarra said.
"Every $1 donated to our holiday Give a Meal campaign helps us provide eight meals to people in need," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America."We encourage people to also visit feedingamerica.org, so they can learn how to help out in their local communities by volunteering or advocating on behalf of the hungry."
