Forty percent of all food produced in the United States is wasted. Yet, one in eight Americans is hungry.
In Philadelphia where 20% of our citizens are hungry, Philabundance delivers food to pantries, shelters, and emergency kitchens, serving more than 90,000 people each week, 30% of whom are children. Every 50 cents donated to Philabundance pays for a meal.
At the Los Angeles Mission the day before Thanksgiving, celebrities and community leaders serve 3,500 meals to LA’s neediest residents on skid row.
We’re winning the fight against hunger. In the last 26 years, the number of hungry people worldwide has fallen by more than 2,000 a day. But there are still millions who don’t know where their next meal will come from.
There are generous and well-run organizations like Philabundance and the Los Angeles Mission all over America. They need our support to help fight hunger.
