Child Hunger in America

I believe that child hunger is one of the most important world problems currently in the United States of America, I also believe that we can eliminate child hunger, with a little step in the right direction.

      More than 1 in 5 children in America are in risk of hunger. For African- Americans and Latinos, it's 1 in 3. Child Hunger needs to be put to an end. We need to be much more responsible about wasting the 40% of food that we waste yearly, that can be used to feed the hungry children of America. America needs to come together to change our habits, for the ones who are lucky to have one meal.

      If you can, I encourage that you give food to food drives, make care packages, or give anything you can to help the children in your community have a happier, healthier lifestyle. There is so much that we can do to eliminate child hunger in America, and with the help of your community. All it takes is a little step in the right direction.
