“Real Stories of Hunger During the Holidays: Brittany” (NEW)

Brittany wasn’t sure her family would be able to celebrate the holidays in the traditional way. Even though both her and her husband work – he has his college degree and works for a local bank, and she manages a movie theater – they still struggle to make ends meet. They stretch every dollar to make sure their two boys have enough to eat – even if that sometimes means going without heat and special Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.

So when Brittany discovered the mobile pantry near her home was distributing complete thanksgiving meals – including turkey, potatoes and pumpkin pie  – she was overjoyed to be able to sit at the dinner table with her family and enjoy a holiday meal.

The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. Donors, staff, partners and volunteers all play an important role in our efforts to end hunger in the United States.

I Am Child Hunger in America

Hunger knows no boundaries. It impacts people from all walks of life – including children. More than 12 million – 1 in 6 – children in America don’t have enough to eat. While most people say they care about the issue of domestic hunger, far fewer take action. Hunger affects children in every community across the country, yet it can often be hard to recognize when a child is struggling with it. “I Am Child Hunger in America” juxtaposes technology with humanity to help people visualize the breadth of the issue and begin to question their own perceptions of hunger in America. The campaign combines real images of children facing hunger, USDA data and artificial intelligence to create a lifelike portrait that represents the stories of children facing hunger in our country.

Real Stories of Hunger: Zoey (NEW)

8-year-old Zoey likes to play outside, spend time with her siblings and dreams of being a veterinarian when she grows up. But before becoming a veterinarian one day, she needs to grow up healthy and strong. For her family, that can feel hard because there’s often not enough food in the fridge to feed everyone. Her parents sometimes have to go without eating just so Zoey and her siblings can have food in their stomachs. Despite the challenges Zoey and her family faces, her energy and hope shine through even in the most difficult times. And with the help of their local food pantry, Zoey is now able to get the food she needs to grow up strong.

Iker wants to be a chef and open a restaurant one day, but before that, he just wants to be a kid. However, that’s hard when he’s hungry during the summer.

Hidden Hunger

Hunger is often hidden, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Millions of people, including children, face hunger in the United States. When families aren’t able to get enough to eat, they are often faced with other challenges meeting basic needs like housing, unemployment, healthcare and more. Feeding America helps provide meals to people in need through a network of food banks and helps address root causes of hunger.
