The purpose of this council is to educate the next generation on the realities of systemic hunger and to reduce the stigma associated with it. Come learn about the hunger in our community, valley, state, and world. Be the change of tomorrow!

Hunger in the US

Almost 13 million kids nation wide are at risk of hunger.

What does hunger look like?

Hunger is what you feel when you do not have enough to eat. Food insecurity is the set of circumstances that prevent your access to food. Right now, thousands of our area residents and neighbors struggle with hunger; some go without food for several meals or even days at a time. 

Hunger does not discriminate. It affects about 4 out of 5 kids in yourr school. The problem is it is also silent. Your peers could be skipping meals and no one, not even their teachers will know.
