37 million Americans, including more than 11 million children don’t have enough to eat. For many people, hunger in America is invisible. They don’t know what it looks like or feels like. The truth is, hunger can be hard to recognize because it affects people from all walks of life in every community across the country – our neighbors, children’s classmates, even coworkers could be struggling to get enough to eat. Using real stories, data from the USDA, and artificial intelligence, new PSAs introduce a lifelike data-driven portrait of domestic hunger. By revealing these stories, the face of hunger challenges public perception of who struggles with hunger in the United States.
The Feeding America network of 200 local food banks is the largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.
