A strong social mission runs through our DNA: to help end hunger in America. OurHarvest is proud to partner with local community organizations as we work together to achieve this goal...and we appreciate your help!
Below you'll find some profiles of our great community partners, but before you get there, consider these staggering statistics that inspired us to donate meals to those in need*:
-- Nearly 1 in 6 Americans lives in a food-insecure household, including almost 16 million kids.
-- Households with children are nearly twice as likely to report food insecurity and require assistance.
-- 4.8 million seniors (over age 60) are food-insecure.
-- Children who are hungry are more likely than their peers to experience behavioral issues, reduced ability to learn social skills, and impaired cognitive learning.
-- Every state and region of the country has people who go hungry every day.
These numbers are way too high, and we're working to change them. OurHarvest thanks our community partners for their great work in fighting hunger and improving our neighborhoods!
