- In the United States, 1 in 6 children is food insecure, meaning they do not know when their next meal is coming.
- Around the world, nearly 1 billion people, or 1 in 7, suffer from hunger.
- Poor people spend upwards of 75% of their income on food, so rising food prices hit them the hardest.
These are just a few statistics, but they are so relevant to cause of First Fridays for Food Security.
Green America has put together this list of 9 ways to go local with your food, which would add a fun twist to the First Friday project by “thinking globally and acting locally”!
Together, we can raise awareness about the realities our brothers & sisters face. With our knowledge we can work to build a just, fair, and sustainable food system.
***SPOILER ALERT*** Stop back next Tuesday for a great related Action Item on Hunger, World Food Day, and Reform!
