The Issue: High Rates of Food Insecurity in Florida

In Florida, the 2010 household food-insecurity rate was 16.1%, according to data cited by Feeding America, making it one of nine states with significantly higher food-insecurity rates than the national average from 2008 to 2010.

The Campaign: Hosting a Food-Packing Event for Kids

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Kids Against Hunger-Central Florida can host a food-packing event that includes an educational presentation about hunger for 30 children. Donations up to $500 will be matched by an anonymous donor. During the event, kids package food for underserved children in their school district, offering participating youth a rare chance to take action against hunger in their own communities. The meals are a special blend of white rice, fortified soy, and dehydrated vegetables that is a source of complete nutrition. Each additional $500 raised will be used to host another food-packing event for kids to help their peers who are in need.
