September is Hunger Action Month
We'd like to introduce you to Kate, who, with Feeding America, is helping us spread the word about hunger in our country.
16 million children in America struggle with hunger. In South Dakota, 1 in 5 children are food insecure, meaning they do not have regular access to food.
But it's not just children who are struggling with hunger. Many individuals, families, and seniors also have this challenge. 1 in 8 South Dakota residents are food insecure and over 120,000 live in poverty.
Our goal during Hunger Action Month is to raise awareness of hunger in all of South Dakota. View our "30 Ways in 30 Days" Calendar (available in August) to find out how you can help us feed those who are hungry, like Kate.
