On Wednesday, August 24, “Good Morning America,” “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline” as well as on ABC News Radio and ABCNews.com featured reports from their series “Hunger at Home: Crisis in America.” This series will demonstrate the reality of hunger in America as well as profile people who are doing work to help our neighbors in need.
ABC will also be announcing a text-to-give campaign where watchers can test “FEED” to 50555 and a $10 donation will be made to Feeding America. Here is a preview of the series.
This series coincides with the release of child food insecurity numbers by county. ConAgra Foods Foundation sponsored additional work to the Map the Meal Gap research done earlier this year which examines food insecurity to the county level.
This week, we will release the information for the percentage of children who do not get enough to eat on the county level. Having this information will help our food banks identify how to address children’s needs across the country.
