In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a very real struggle. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.
Right now, millions of Americans are at risk of hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot always make ends meet and may be forced to go without food (from Feeding America).
Households in need of food can receive assistance from one of two local Salvation Army Food Pantries one time each month, which may not be sufficient for some households. The amount of food each household receives is based on the number of individuals in the family/household.
