The Tyson KNOW Hunger campaign, launched a couple of weeks ago, is based on our own experience–and a nationwide survey we conducted with FRAC–that indicates often people see hunger as a national problem, but not so much in their own communities.
This week Feeding America launched a phenomenal new tool to illustrate the face of hunger in the U.S. Their Map the Meal Gap project, launched in partnership with the Howard Buffett Foundation and the Nielsen Company, is the result of a painstaking amount of data collection, channelled into an interactive tool that provides quick, easy access to levels of food insecurity and factors contributing to the challenges in every single county in the country.
I could describe it here, but you really should go there and look at it yourself. See what’s happening in your state and your community. Then share it with your friends and family.
