2014 Hunger in America Report Reveals Depths of Need on the Treasure Coast

 

Thousands of hungry people on the Treasure Coast regularly face deciding whether to eat or whether to pay for electricity, buy medicine or even put gas in their cars to get to work.

 

Those decisions are part of the coping strategies revealed by the Hunger in America 2014 study released today by Feeding America, the nation's largest hunger-relief charity. The study documents the critical role that Treasure Coast Food Bank and other Feeding America member food banks and their partner agencies play in supporting struggling families in the United States.

 

The surveys conducted in 2012-13 occurred during historically high demand for food assistance in the persistently weak economy and show that the charitable food assistance network has expanded with many innovative programs to serve the growing needs of individuals seeking access to nutritious food.

 

"Hunger in America 2014 is the largest, most comprehensive study of its kind, and it shows how deep the problem of hunger goes in Southeast Florida and across the nation," said Treasure Coast Food Bank CEO Judith Cruz. "It tells us we need to continue our efforts not only to distribute food but to assist people with programs that help them climb out of poverty."

 

Local findings along with our press release is available using the links below:

Set a Plate for Kate

 

Meet Kate, a little girl with orange pigtails and a sobering story who has become the poster child for food banks across the nation and the families they are helping.

 

While Kate seems like an ordinary girl, there is something you don’t know about her. Her dad lost his job and now her family is struggling to make ends meet. They often don’t have money for food and sometimes Kate is hungry.

 

Sure, Kate is just a cartoon, but her story is shared by more than 33,000 children in the four-county region served by Treasure Coast Food Bank.



 

To help set a plate for Kate and all those in our community struggling to put food on the table, donate here today.
