Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the United States do not know where there next meal is coming from? These children do not just live in low income areas. Over the last few years many of these children come from families of the working poor. With the economy taking an economic downturn, many families lost one or both of their incomes and became what is now known as ‘The Working Poor‘.

|I wanted to share what the rate of food insecurity was in MY state, Indiana.|
I will be sharing more about this in the coming weeks. I truly hope that you will take a moment and see how YOU can quickly, easily and generously make a difference in a child’s life. You never know when one of these food insecure families can be yours. It truly defines you, it certainly did me. Growing up as a food insecure child myself, I can appreciate what a gift of a bag of groceries means to a needy family.
