Child Nutrition Programs and the Goal to End Hunger in America by 2030

Offering of Letters at St. John XXIII Catholic Community
"If we want to have adults in 2030 be hunger-free, the children those adults are now need to be hunger-free today. The fastest, most direct way to reduce child hunger is through existing child nutrition programs. However, ending hunger for good requires a sustainable solution to poverty. Children are hungry because their families are struggling economically.

As stated in Bread for the World Institute’s 2014 Hunger Report: Ending Hunger in America, a long-term solution to hunger requires good jobs, investments in people, a strong safety net, and strong public-private partnerships. Child nutrition programs are a critical component of our country’s federal safety-net programs. Strengthening them is critical to meeting the goal of ending hunger by 2030." -From 2015 Offering of Letters main booklet
