*The Unseen Hunger in a Land of Plenty*

It’s easy to assume hunger is a problem far away. Yet, the shocking reality is that millions of Americans struggle with hunger every day:

* *Poverty’s Shadow:* Over 38 million Americans live in poverty, making impossible choices between food, housing, and other basic needs.
* *Hunger’s Toll:* Approximately 10.5 million households in the US experience food insecurity. This means they lack consistent access to the food they need for a healthy, active life.
* *Children at Risk:* 1 in 6 children face hunger, jeopardizing their development, their ability to learn, and their dreams for the future.
* *The Working Poor:* Millions of Americans work hard but still can’t afford enough food. Rising costs have worsened their situation and pushed more families to the brink.
* *Hidden Homelessness:* Over half a million Americans experience homelessness on any given night, with many more precariously housed and at risk of food insecurity.
