What We Believe

 

About 300 million children in the world go to bed hungry each night or don't get enough to eat. While those are alarming numbers, right here in America, the richest nation on earth, over 16 million children under 18 years of age do not have access to adequate amounts of nutritious food necessary for maintaining a healthy life. We believe that it is important for America to contribute to world hunger as a nation, but we must also make sure that America stays strong and healthy too, and not forget that there are millions of our own children that go to bed hungry every night. What children eat in the first three years of their lives is important for establishing a good foundation that will affect child's future physical and mental health as well as academic achievement.

We also believe that it is not enough to just feed a child. "Give a child a meal, and you feed them for a day. But if you feed them and teach them to read, you give them a greater gift that will empower them for a lifetime."
