Hunger in America is Growing!
In the wake of the Covid 19 Pandemic, unemployment has soared and food insecurity is on the rise. In 2020 more than 54 million people may face hunger because of the Coronavirus. In Henderson County Kentucky, the 2020 projected overall food insecurity rate is 21.1%
In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it is almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry, yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. Here at HCCO, we work to get nourishing food from farmers, manufacturers and retailers to people in need.
