Mark Your Calendars – Sunday, September 18
Planning for Hunger Hike 2022 has begun — and all indications suggest it may be needed now more than ever. Did you know…
- Food prices increased 7.9 percent since 2021
- Food insecurity has increased among families with children and communities of color due to COVID-19
- Rural communities are especially hard hit by hunger
- Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs
- Hunger in African American, Latino, and Native American communities is higher in large part due to systemic racial injustice (Source: Feeding America)
