Hunger Cause Week
Meet the NJECC charities that address this cause:
More than 42 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 13 million children. Poverty is one of the factors that affect a person's ability to have enough food to meet their needs. Yet up to two thirds of people facing hunger have incomes above the federal poverty line. The rates of food insecurity are much higher for African American, Latino, and Native American families because of systemic racial injustice. To achieve a hunger-free America, we must address the root causes of hunger and structural and systemic inequities.
If you care about making food accessible to individuals facing hunger, show that #NewJerseyGives by making your pledge to charities working in this cause area.
