Every January 1, The Perfect Pantry takes a moment to recommit to the fight against childhood hunger in America.
The statistics are appalling. One out of five kids -- that's 16 million kids -- don't get the food they need. Children who don't eat enough suffer long-term health consequences, and they have difficulty excelling in school. Kids from food-insecure households who do get hot meals in school during the week still face weekends without hot meals, or without any meals. And what happens in summer, when school is out?
We can do better. All of us, working together, can do better.
Why not start by making a tax-deductible contribution to No Kid Hungry? Click this link: http://www.nokidhungry.org/.
Thank you, in advance, for all you will do in 2014 to end childhood hunger in America.
