Right here in America, there are 16 million children who are struggling with hunger. That’s the population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago combined. Scary thought huh?
Hunger’s youngest victims are often invisible in the United States, but the reality is, hunger in America has no boundaries – rural, urban and suburban – and with 1 in 5 children unaware where their next meal is coming from, one of these children could be your own neighbor or even your child’s best friend.
The idea of my children having to go through a day, or even go to bed without a meal in their tummy is heartbreaking.
This is why I have partnered with Unilever in the Project Sunlight campaign, an effort to rally people across the country and “Share A Meal to Help Turn the Tables on Child Hunger in America.”
UNILEVER PROJECT SUNLIGHT
Unilever Project Sunlight is an initiative focused on encouraging people to create a brighter future for children – by taking small steps to live sustainably, use less and share even more.
On October 13th, Unilever premiered a documentary titled – Going to Bed Hungry : Changing the Face of Child Hunger. The goal of this documentary is to raise awareness of the issue that likely impacts everyone’s neighborhood and unfortunately often goes unnoticed.
