Feeding America

 Feeding America

 is an amazing orgainization that helps those in need of food. These are the statistics they provide:

Hunger & Poverty Statistics

Although related, food insecurity and poverty are not the same. Unemployment rather than poverty is a stronger predictor of food insecurity.
Poverty
In 2009, 43.6 million people (14.3 percent) were in poverty.
In 2010, 46.2 million people were in poverty.
In 2010, 48.8 million Americans lived in food insecure households,
 32.6 million adults and 16.2 million children. Feeding America
            $1.oo donation provides 8 meals 
     For the month of December every "Seven Years of Plenty" Book I sell, I will donate to Feeding America. So many people need help right now, and it is nice to know we will be helping someone have food in their pantry.
