Hunger Increases Among Children In Houston
Last year, the increase in the number of children facing hunger in Southeast Texas was just under 20,000. That means more and more children became at-risk of food insecurity. As the numbers increase, it gets worse for children. According to the Houston Food Bank which gathers information from Feeding America and U.S. Department of Agriculture, one in four children live in households that do not have enough food to eat. Its heart- wrenching to think about 1 in 4 children going to bed hungry in Houston, Texas. To Houstonians, it should be an unacceptable reality.
Tonight, 1 in 4 children in Houston, Texas will go to bed hungry
We are asking you to help us feed hot meals to 70 of these children on the Southeast side of Houston, Texas, during the ten weeks of summer beginning June 5, 2017. It may be the only hot meal they get for the day.
