HUNGER IN AMERICA

LEARN WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE FACING HUNGER
IN YOUR COMMUNITY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

 

Lauren Biedron

Vice President of Corporate Partnerships, Feeding America – the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization and the second largest nonprofit in the U.S. In her role, Lauren oversees revenue for existing cause marketing and corporate philanthropy partners. Lauren has dedicated her entire career to the mission of ending hunger. 

 

Did you know that millions of Americans struggle to put food on their tables for themselves and their family? In fact, 1 in 7 Americans turn to the Feeding America network of food banks for help. It could be a friend, co-worker, or neighbor; food insecurity does not discriminate nor does it present a certain face.

 

Did you know?

  • 37 million people struggle with hunger in the U.S., including more than 11 million children.
  • A household that is food insecure has limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy life.
  • Based on the most recent “The State of Senior Hunger in America” report, released in 2019 using 2017 data, 5.5 million seniors, or 7.7% of the senior population, were food insecure in 2017. 
  • Every dollar donated to Feeding America helps secure and distribute at least 12 pounds of food — the equivalent of 10 meals — through a nationwide network of food banks.

 

Wells Fargo will launch the 2019 Holiday Food Bank program, by working side by side with the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, Feeding America. Feeding America’s Lauren Biedron will discuss how you can make a difference this holiday season by helping your neighbors in need.
