In the United States, over 40 million people struggled with food scarcity in 2017, and 45 million Americans relied on food stamps in order to eat. In 2018, 1 in 9 individuals were food insecure. Overall, more than half of food-insecure households rely on a federal food program for assistance.
The United Outreach Foundation will be holding food drives with your help to support our local homeless shelters and battered women homes. There are far too many people going hungry in local communities, despite the abundance of food.
