As many of you realize, politics and politicians are to blame - while we cannot make any real difference in Washington, we actually can help the hungry. 

The financial and economic crisis that erupted in 2008 caused a dramatic increase in hunger in the United States.

 Households with children reported a significantly higher food insecurity rate than households without children in 2011: 20.6% vs. 12.2%

These 7 states have statistically higher food insecurity rates than the US national average (14.7%): Mississippi (19.2%), Texas (18.5%), Arkansas (19.2%), Alabama (17.4%), Georgia (17.4%), Florida (16.2%), North Carolina (17.1%).

All this means - PLEASE help The Sanctuary Project to help families in our area!
