Support Target Hunger

A Hundred Pennies 4-Hunger

Target Hunger is calling all men, women, boys and girls to join the collection to help fight hunger in Houston.  We're asking for your support throughout he months of April, May and June.

 

Join the fight against hunger by asking every member of your family, church, school, synagogue, mosque, temple, corportion or organization to collect A-Hundred Pennies 4-Hunger.

 

June is Hunger Awareness Month and also marks the close of the public school year.  Many families who struggle to make ends meet will take ont eh additional expense of replacing two meals each day per child over the course of the summer break.  Those families with children who receive reduced-priced or free meals at school will now have to provide additional groceries to replace the breakfasts and lunches their children receive at school - with no increase in income.

 

Hunger Facts:  1 out of 6 children in the greater Houston area go to bed hungry.  With 16 million children struggling with hunger in America, it's time we work together to make sure that no child goes without the nutritious meals they need to grow and learn.

  • 2 pounds of fresh vegetables
  • 2 pounds of fresh fruit
  • 1 pound of dried beans
  • 1 pound of fresh meat
  • 1 jar of peanut butter
