Did you know that 49 million Americans are food insecure? Or that 1 out of 5 kids in America struggle with hunger?
Well there’s good news—you can help change these statistics! This Thursday, September 25th, Zag Dining by Sodexo is putting on a Go Orange for No Kid Hungry lunch at the BARC. Come join us at our station where anyone can donate a few minutes of their time to help us assemble orange snack bags. Our goal is to reach 1,000 snack bags by the end of the day and we need your help! You can take pride in knowing these orange bags you create will be helping children here in the Spokane community.
Many still believe food insecurity only exists in third world countries. Here in the United States of America, 16 million kids live in households that struggle to put food on the table. That could fill up 845 basketball stadiums!
These figures are threatening America’s future. Every time a child goes hungry, they cannot reach their full potential. No Kid Hungry and the Sodexo Foundation want to make sure every child has the opportunity to reach for the stars without the fear of hunger getting in the way. Let’s start by helping our own Spokane Community!
All of us here at Gonzaga University are fortunate enough to not struggle with hunger. We are able to reach our full potential every day. However, many children right here in our community do not get that chance. All it takes is a small action to make a huge difference.
Childhood hunger is solvable. So come on out and show us your orange-itude this Thursday at the BARC!
