A recent CNBC article showed a great need to fight against hunger this year. The article states that 17 million children are in danger of not having enough to eat this year. Also, the article states that 12% of all Americans did not have enough to eat. A number that equates to 25.7 million people. Finally, the report also says that the US Census Bureau released findings that 14 million households with children say they do not have enough to eat often. It also states that philanthropy may not be enough in this case. However, every little bit helps combat hunger.
“Food banks distributed an estimated 4.2 billion meals nationwide between March and October. But it’s not enough, says John B. King Jr., president of The Education Trust and former U.S. Secretary of Education under President Barack Obama.” (Leonhardt, 2020)
