Raising Awareness with Hunger Action Month

RAISING AWARENESS
WITH HUNGER ACTION MONTH

In America, hunger tends to be thought of as a minimal problem, but one in six Americans – and one in five children in the U.S. – are dealing with a very real hunger problem. Upwards of 15 percent of Americans live in food insecure households, where a lack of money and/or resources means there isn’t consistent access to quality food and nutrition.

1:3 Latinos report going hungry

56% of eligible Latinos enrolled in SNAP program

80% of Latinos are overweight or obese

14.2% of Latinos have two or more chronic diseases.

What can you do to help combat this issue?

ALCREJ is helping the Latino community eat healthy and nutritious food on a budget. Through the support of National Council of La Raza, ALCREJ is working to help families apply for SNAP formally called food stamps. It is important that families take advantage of this opportunity. Families are not asking for a favor, it is a benefit their US born children has. The immigration status of parents does not affect benefits of US born children. We are educating our community through charlas (community discussions) to assist them make healthy food choices. We have demonstrated to families how they can shop for a family of 4 with $5.00.

Food is a basic need which should be provided to everyone. The thing is it's really sad to hear about this.

Many people are living in America. It seems that some people are getting less resources in America. Now people can contact with American Latino Centre where they can get all resources to get good life. They can also get justice form this centre.
