In a country as abundant as ours:
- millions of adults, hard working families with children and seniors are forced to make choices between everyday necessities, like rent, utilities or medicine, and food.
- nearly 14 million children do not know where their next meal will come from.
- many people have spent their entire lives working hard, retired on a fixed income and are now at risk of spending their last years hungry.
