There is a truth in America that many of us do not experience but one that far too many know firsthand: Hunger. It’s unfathomable that 41 million people are food insecure in the United States of America. Forty-one MILLION people may not know where their next meal will come from! That’s insane and it’s hidden from so many of us.
It’s hidden, but it’s there. It’s in inner cities. It's in rural communities. It's in affluent suburbs, cities, towns and neighborhoods across our nation. Of those 41 million people, 13 million of them are children under the age of 18. THIRTEEN MILLION CHILDREN don’t have consistent access to nutritious food sources.
WE can do better. We MUST do better! And while we work to fix the systemic faults in our society that have led us to this tragic reality, we are thankful there is help for those who face hunger today, tonight or tomorrow.
Skelmir has partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Thanks to donations and support from businesses, government organizations and individuals like you, the Feeding America network of food banks, food pantries and meal programs serves every county in the United States.
Even more, 99% of all donations raised by Feeding America go directly into programs serving people in need. Because of this efficiency, they are able to turn every $1 raised into 10 nutritious meals served.
$1 = 10 stomachs filled
$1 = 10 children NOT going to bed hungry tonight
$1 = 10 children getting a healthy, nourishing meal at school so that they can concentrate, learn and thrive
WE can do this, $1 at a time. Let’s get started today!
Our hope is to provide 200,000 meals to people in need in the U.S. and that means raising $20,000. To help us get there, Skelmir will match $2 for each of the first $5,000 donated, up to $10,000. It’s a drop in the bucket, but each of those 200,000 people will see it as far more.
Please join us in our fight to help feed America.
