Anyone Can Experience Hunger

HUNGER DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE


 

A common misconception is that if someone is hungry, he or she is unemployed and/or living on the streets.  Hunger is a silent epidemic that affects more than 49 million Americans. The faces of hunger may surprise you. At one time it was the homeless man on the corner who used a soup kitchen to get by. These days the face of hunger includes a family where the adults are employed but cannot make ends meet, a child who sits next to your child in school and goes to bed hungry, and an elderly neighbor who skips meals to afford medication.

MSP currently operates our school pantry at Stirling and Orangebrook Elementary. This year we’re expanding our school pantry to two additional schools in Broward County. Many more schools have children and families in need of this food assistance. With your help, we can reach more people who need our assistance and ensure that we have the ability to meet our community’s hunger needs. The 650 people we feed each month are just like you. They are mothers & fathers, senior citizens & children - all hoping that one day they won’t have to ask for help.
