Child hunger struck 15.3 million children in 2014. Children getting a good nutrition is vital for the child’s mental and physical health. The United States Department of Agriculture discovered that the 15.3 million children were unable to consistently access enough food to be healthy. To make awareness of this issue there is a Summer Food Box Program that feeds over 75,000 families per month. This program is designed to feed hungry children whose September lunch tickets remain out of for months. This is one thing that is going on to help the hungry child of America and abroad. I feel like out of all the problems in the world child hunger is one of the most serious ones. To help prevent child hunger, you can donated canned goods or money to help an innocent child in need.
