Why is your support so important?

One in four children in New Hanover County goes hungry daily. That means 25% of the children in New Hanover County experience food insecurity. When a child suffers from lack of nutrition, it creates a ripple effect in the child’s life, classroom, neighborhood, and community. Children who lack proper nutrition have documented decreases in mental and physical development. Hunger can result in irritability, poor performance in school, and an inability to normalize within peer groups, all of which can follow children into adulthood and affect their quality of life and further perpetuates the cycle of poverty. We cannot let chronic childhood hunger happen on our watch.
