Why Food Insecurity Matters
Food insecurity isn't just a lack of food; it's a barrier to education, a threat to health, and a cycle that traps families in poverty. It affects children, seniors, and hardworking individuals who, due to various circumstances, can't access nutritious meals regularly. The consequences are dire, impacting physical and mental well-being, hindering personal development, and perpetuating inequality.
