Peanut Butter For the Hungry

Hunger Challenge

Good nutrition, particularly in the 1,000-day window (from pregnancy to age two), is crucial in establishing and maintaining a strong foundation that can influence a child’s future physical and mental health, academic achievement, and economic productivity.

Food insecurity, which can lead to malnutrition, is unfortunately a common obstacle that threatens this very foundation.

In America alone, 34 million people are food insecure, including 9 million children, according to Feeding America and the Agriculture Department. Further, 49 million people turned to food programs in 2022 and 100% of U.S. countries are food insecure.
