The thought of a child going to bed hungry breaks my heart. I know what it’s like to be sick and can’t eat, or have to go 24 hours without solid food for medical tests… the hunger pains are excruciating. I cannot imagine having that feeling on a daily or somewhat daily basis.
I also do not see any excuse for a child in the United States to ever go hungry. C’mon, we are the land of plenty. Right?
At least in many cases throughout the U.S. many children to do not know where their next meal is coming from. Sad, but true.
Thank you to ConAgra Foods for taking the initiative and helping to end child hunger. Here’s their message:
More than one in five children, including more than one in four Latino children, in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds.
Children who experience even intermittent struggles with hunger may suffer serious, long-term consequences to their health, well-being and educational achievement. What’s more, being hungry robs kids of the promise of childhood – the ability to play, grow and learn.
At ConAgra Foods, we find this unacceptable. That’s why we are partnering with P&G to build a community of people to make a difference and help donate up to 7 million meals through the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
It’s easy to make a difference: Look for the red pushpin on participating product packaging for a code found on these specially marked ConAgra Foods and P&G products.
