numbers are staggering.
According to the U.S. Depratment of Agriculture's

are children. That's an increase of over 35%

This isn't some distant country below the equator

countrymen, perhaps citizens of your city, maybe
even your neighbors.
Food banks used to take up this kind of slack

locate a food bank near you. Every little contribution
And thank you.
