Being able to provide food for your family is a capability that many take for granted. Thousands of families struggle daily to put meals on their table for themselves, their children, and other family members who may depend on them. During uncertain times, this struggle is an added stressor and burden for families who were already living near or at the poverty line.
According to USDA.gov, in 2019, around 5.3 million homes had low food security, meaning eating patterns and food intake were reduced due to low income or unforeseen circumstances. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in tens of millions of people being out of work, creating a sharp rise in national food insecurity. Families and individuals across the country have been affected, from single moms trying to care for their children, the elderly who are on a limited income, or veterans and others attempting to survive on the streets -- food insecurity is all too familiar.
By supporting those who are experiencing hardships -- whether due to insufficient or decreased income, unemployment, the effects of a natural disaster, or other adversity -- you can be their saving grace. When you purchase a food kit, they may be sent to shelters, food pantries, food kitchens and other organizations that can get the food and supplies directly into the hands of those who need it most. With the purchase of a kit, you are ensuring that no parent, child, grandparent, friend or neighbor goes hungry.
Food is a right that no one should have to struggle for. Support those who need your help by providing healthy, nourishing and ready-to-go food, as well as reusable supplies that can benefit families.
