As I conclude my first month at God's Pantry Food Bank, I know that my two-year journey on the road to finding ways to alleviate child hunger has just begun. Before my role as a Child Hunger Corps Member at God's Pantry Food Bank, I didn't realize how food insecurity affected so many people in Kentucky and even in my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky.

As many gather in Des Moines for the World Food Prize this week, it's a good time to consider the irony of rural hunger in America - where food is all around but out of reach for many of our neighbors.

After nearly a decade of raising funds for hunger relief, I decided to take the SNAP Challenge to draw a deeper connection to my work and the struggles of those served by Feeding America's nationwide network of food banks. And while my experience is in no way representative of what our clients face, let me just say this: This is tough. With food insecurity as the backdrop, everyday tasks are more trying, decisions more difficult. It is no way to live and yet the reality of life for 49 million Americans.
