Hunger does not discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life. They live in cities, suburbs and rural communities. Some are from the middle class, some are from the working poor, and some come from generation after generation of poverty. Closer to home, more than 40% of our Avondale neighbors live below the poverty line. Funding for government programs meant to help the hungry continues to be cut. In this climate, food pantries have become an important alternative source of food for the desperate. Please join us as we explore this critical issue, from statistics to personal stories of hunger.
