Child hunger is a sad infliction that unfortunately plagues many families. More than one in five children in the United States may not know where their next meal is coming from. That’s nearly 16 million children, a number that could fill 8,000 playgrounds. That number is staggering and heartbreaking.
Child hunger is more than an immediate problem for children, child hunger can cause long term issues to their health. Not to mention no child should have to wonder when they will eat next. They should be running through the sprinklers in the front yard or play hopscotch, jump rope, or baseball.
ConAgra Foods and P&G have partnered to make a difference donating up to 7 million (yes I said million) meals with the Child Hunger Ends Here program.
