Across the country, nearly one in five children will struggle with hunger this year, according to Share Our Strength. That’s more than 16 million children in the U.S. who do not get enough to eat. In DC alone from 2009 to 2010, 37.4 percent of households with children said they couldn’t afford enough food, according to DC Hunger Solutions.
To help drive down these statistics and child hunger, some of the DC bloggers are hosting a bake sale today as part of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. All you have to do is stop by and purchase some baked goods to help a good cause.
Here are the details:
