Child Hunger In America
Child hunger in America is a serious issue that affects millions of children who struggle to access nutritious meals on a daily basis. In response to this pressing issue, Bazzle Baby is taking a stand by pledging to donate 15% of every purchase in February to No Kid Hungry to help end child hunger in America.
Prevalence of Child Hunger
According to the USDA, approximately 10.5% of U.S. households with children were food insecure at some point in 2019, meaning they had difficulty providing enough food for all their members. Millions of children go to bed hungry each night, lacking access to sufficient and nutritious food. The consequences of malnutrition on a child's physical and mental development are profound, affecting not only their health but also their ability to learn and thrive.
School meal programs, such as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP), play a crucial role in providing nutritious meals to low-income children. These programs are essential for addressing food insecurity among students.
Many children who rely on school meals during the academic year face food insecurity during the summer when these programs are not available. No Kid Hungry tries to bridge this gap by providing meals and snacks during the summer months.
Advocacy and Awareness
Every kid needs three meals a day to grow up healthy, happy, and strong, and too many children are missing those meals. Numerous organizations, activists, and advocates work tirelessly to raise awareness about child hunger and advocate for policy changes to address the root causes of food insecurity. These include local food banks, national nonprofits, and community-driven initiatives, all aiming to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry.
Organizations like No Kid Hungry play a crucial role in distributing food to families in need, advocating for policies that address the root causes of hunger, and implementing programs to empower communities.
Donating 15% of Every Purchase
During the season of spreading love in February, we at Bazzle Baby will be donating 15% of every purchase to No Kid Hungry. This initiative aims to provide sustainable funding to an organization that is actively working to ensure no child goes hungry in America. By donating a percentage of Bazzle Baby purchases towards this cause, we hope to contribute to the broader effort of ensuring that no child goes to bed hungry.
Child hunger is a deeply concerning issue that requires collective action. Our company is proud to stand on the front lines of this fight, pledging to donate 15% of every purchase to organizations dedicated to feeding children in need.
Together, we can make a difference and create a future where no child in America has to endure the pain of hunger. Join us in this mission, and let's work towards a hunger-free future for all children.
