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 a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. We work to get nourishing food – from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers – to people in need. At the same time, we also seek to help the people we serve build a path to a brighter, food-secure future.

The Struggle of Everyday Life In Anna Quindlen’s essay “School’s Out for Summer” she expresses the importance in why we need to end child hunger and the struggles that parents go though to make sure that their child get a good meal that day, even if they don't eat, the child will still get a meal. Child hunger is a problem for everybody in the world we live in today. It's not just in rural african countries, but its also in the “best country” in the world, some people may say, which is United States.
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.
For twenty five years the church of the apostles in New York has fed the homeless every morning, never missing a single day. But the food that the church can provide grows smaller every year, Anna Quindlen states “the issue is measured in mouthfuls” and follows up with “ In Los Angeles 24 million pounds of food in 2002 became 15 million in 2006.” These quotes give the reader a logical reason to be empathetic towards the hungry by explaining the problem and giving statistical reasoning as to exactly how monumental the problem actually is
They propose that this can be done with food pantries funded through University Food Bank Alliance, and many other foundations and programs which will reduce the costs of food. Goldrick-Rab and Broton propose that these programs will solve the issue of hunger and homelessness through
Do you remember those commercials on television that claimed you could feed a starving child in Africa for just 50 cents a day? In Robert Paarlberg's article "Attention Whole Food's Shoppers" he reminds readers that not everyone in the world is as fortunate as those who live in developed countries and that it seems those living in more prosperous nations have become more apathetic towards the issue of hunger and food production in less developed countries. His use of pathos and ethos make readers feel more connected to the issue, as well as his use of logos to educate the reader while offering practical solutions to the issue ultimately make his argument effective. The article begins with Paarlberg talking about how people living in western
Around the world, there are thousands of starving children that seem to go unnoticed daily. Shoppers are constantly in the supermarket filling their carts with hundreds of dollars’ worth of groceries for their family’s without thinking of those in need. In 2008, a remarkable shopping cart ad was released which depicts a distraught young African American child reaching up to the shopper begging for help to save him from starvation. Feed SA, a charitable organization which helps the poverty-stricken across the county has designed a striking ad to bring attention to just how easy donating can be. The effectiveness of this ad is due to the powerful rhetorical appeals to pathos in which it implements.
Steps need to be taken to make a difference in the longer term and even within the current systems. Lunch ladies risked their jobs to bring attention to the nutritional needs of hungry children. They were change agents, whether they wanted to be or not. Their advocacy of their students spawned the school districts to reexamine the scope of the problems, their policies and policy making. Hunger and poverty have been staggering issues for many years without solid resolutions.
Many kids in the U.S are suffering from child hunger and don’t know when their next meal would come and where it would come from. Children won’t progress in school since child hunger affects their school performance and grades. If we donate more to foundations that exist today then there is a higher chance of change and child hunger ending. Child hunger is spreading spreading all over the world and if we don’t stop it in the U.S we won’t be able to help other countries. With a little donation you could be the reason why our future generations are improving, the world is safe, and there is now no child hungry.
Using his Native American roots and experiences in life as guidance in his writings, Simon J. Ortiz became a poet who was widely known through the late twentieth century. He wrote about his struggles of attempting to fit in within American culture and society. During his career Ortiz received a variety of awards for his writings of the struggles Native Americans faced, and about his stories of Native American tradition. He also received recognition for accurately depicting life in an American society as told from an “outsiders” perspective. He expressed this concept in his poem “ Hunger in New York City,” published in 1967. He expresses his attempts of fitting into society but continually longs for his Native American culture and way of life. Ortiz is a well known and respected poet and short story write because of his background, many awards, and his poem “Hunger in New York City.”
World Hunger affects a significant amount of people all around the world. It is an issue that everyone should be aware of.
