I have created my personal fundraising page to support Conscious Alliance's 'On The Road to End Hunger' campaign. The goal; to assist in raising $200,000 tp keep the Conscious Alliance trucks rolling and ensure families in need have access to nutritious food this holiday season!

I encourage you to take a moment to scan through some of the bullet points below about the millions of children and families living in America whom are facing hunger and food insecurity every day;

  • Due to the pandemic, more than 42 million people are experiencing food insecurity, including a potential 13 million children
  • The pandemic has most impacted families that were already facing hunger or one paycheck away from facing hunger.
  • More than 38 million people in the United States experienced hunger in the past 18 months due to the pandemic.
  • Households with children are more likely to experience food insecurity. Before the coronavirus pandemic, more than 12 million children live in food-insecure households.
  • Every community in the country is home to families who face hunger, including rural and suburban communities.
  • Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs and visit their local food banks and other food programs for extra support.
  • Hunger in African American, Latino, and Native American communities is higher because of systemic racial injustice.
  • To achieve a hunger-free America, we must address the root causes of hunger and structural and systemic inequities.
