Hunger Action Week on March 24th

Top 2 Highlight:

1. Giving away $5 Starbucks Gift cards and Re-usable bags

2. Learning about everyone from kids to adults that are hungry in the U.S.

Most surprising thing Heard:
1. In the last 4 years the rise of 30% more clients coming in for help from the food banks

2.  Donations from food banks are also going down

3. 52% of fourth graders in the U.S. have free and reduced lunch , 70 % of those kids are in the King County

4. Over the past 5 years the number of seniors using the food banks increased to 45%

 

Most Controversial:

We need to help stop hunger in our communities by giving people who need food what we can give them.  We can help out little by little , just by starting out like what we did which was give out surveys to see how people get their foods and where they get their foods.
