I volunteered for the service project at High Plains Food Bank. High Plains Food Bank was founded in 1982 by a group of concerned citizens who conducted a survey to see if food banks were needed in the area. High Plains Food Bank is a nonprofit organization, and its mission is to attenuate hunger in the Texas Panhandle by collecting, storing, and distributing groceries to the hungry people in the Texas Panhandle. The agency helps many families every year and is continuing to help more families. The food bank is located at 815 Ross St, Amarillo, TX.
Did you know that 1 in 5 U.S. kids don’t get the food they need every day? This negatively impacts kids’ health and development, but this can also negatively impact them academically as well as emotionally and socially. No Kid Hungry is an organization that is making a difference regarding this problem. No Kid Hungry was founded by Billy Shore and his sister Debbie Shore in 1984. Since then, No Kid Hungry has raised and invested more than $528 million in the fight against hunger, and has won the support of national leaders in business, government, health and education, sports, and entertainment.
Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that provides food and services to people each year. Together this network is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization. Recently, more families and individuals begin to struggle with hunger due to the cost of living increasing and income from employers not being sufficient enough to feed and take care of a family. Price and income shifts can radically impact the poor and hungry.
In the United States there are many children and adults that go hungry, due to financial problems. With the economy and how high cost of living is, it’s hard to provide, food for the family. The results of hunger on children in America are not having the right nutrition, can have serious implication for a child’s physical and mental health. Also food insecurity is harmful to all people, but it is particularly devastating to children.
The systems we have put in place to ensure individuals and families do not fall into destitution often fail to do the job; with people struggling without the necessities of life for too long (HungerCount, 2014). Therefore, the Salvations Army food banks can be seen as a Social Economy institution for many reasons. J.J. McMurtry argues that the Social Economy is based on the community and the individual. He says "people participate in the social economy-not to be non-profit or non-state per se, but to actually make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of other, to build community of one sort or another" (J.J. McMurtry, Pg 30). Salvation Army food banks are predominantly made to focus its attention on communities.
is Looking on the other side of hunger, those who live with wealth and do not share the problems of the poor have actually increased in their prosperity, “The share of the nation 's income going to the top 1 percent of its citizens is at its highest level since 1928.” [This disparity has grown even more in the last decade, since the article was written] Not only have the wealthy increased in their wealth, but as they do it becomes harder to make change “An agriculture bill that would have increased aid and the food-stamp allotment has been knocking around Congress, where no one ever goes hungry.” Because of difference in lifestyle, the people of power believe they have no prerogative to help those in
Across the globe humans face poverty, unemployment, natural disasters, and other life-altering problems. The thing that those problems have in common is causing the pain and misery of food not being on the table. Many people and organizations are fundraising and collecting donations to help those in need. Programs educate and teach people to create self-sustaining food sources. However there is one very powerful and reputable group that has the most power to help the cause of hungry children in the United States and that group is the federal government.
Nearly half of America’s food goes to waste every year. Feeding America is an organization that specializes in fighting hunger and helping people that don’t have food. 42 million people face hunger in the U.S. today including nearly 13 million children and more than five million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries, it touches every community in the U.S., including your own. Volunteers power the Feeding America network.
Trussell Trust food banks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. Last year the Trust's UK food bank network fed over 128,000 people.

Hunger in America “The war against hunger is truly mankind’s war of liberation.”-John F. Kennedy. This war against hunger can be found in all corners of the globe.

Since 1990, the world has reduced the number of people who live in extreme poverty by over half. But that still leaves 767 million people living on the edge of survival with less than $1.90 a day.2 The numbers of world hunger has gone down by a lot, but yet world hunger is still going on. Some of the poorest countries in the world have few to no jobs, and the few jobs that there are, are paid very little each day. Survival is key to these people and with the little money they have, it’s hard to do that. Across the globe, conflicts consistently disrupt farming and food production.
It not only wastes money but also causes some environmental problems, such as pollution and rats. However, many people do not realize the problem now. Considering that food waste is troubling, it is important to initiate a movement to motivate residents to reduce food waste, and the movement can be carried out through reeducatice and facilitative strategies. Food waste is a significant food-related issue in my community as well as many other communities and cities.
Volunteering is a way of helping others. It is giving a person 's time and ability to help someone who may be in need of help. Not only does volunteering help others, but what they may not know is that it can be helpful to themselves. It is a great way for someone to interact with others in their community. It gives someone that time to themselves while also creating bonds when they are doing the greater good.
