Food For Hungry Children
Hunger is the number one health risk in the world. One in eight people goes to bed hungry each night. And lack of food leads to dehydration, malnourishment, weakened immune systems and impaired brain function, among other things. Close to 3 billion people live on less than $2 per day. And that’s $2 a day for all of life’s expenses — food, transportation, housing, emergencies, etc. Many of us spend twice that amount on our morning cup of coffee.
It’s difficult to imagine having a satisfying meal for $2, let alone only having $2 to try and meet all of the needs that come up during a day. However, our $2 Dinner Challenge will help with this a little bit. It’ll give you a small taste of what life is like for children and families living in extreme poverty.
