Food Donations
What is food insecurity?  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.[2] It is important to know that though hunger and food insecurity are closely related, they are distinct concepts. Hunger refers to a personal, physical sensation of discomfort, while food insecurity refers to a lack of available financial resources for food at the household level.
Robert Stein, Community Service Chair, requests that our focus for the month of October is helping with food insecurity.  Consider donations food items or a monetary donation to a local food pantry this month.
Our club has also volunteered with Harvest for the Hungry.  This information is shared from their website about food insecurity in Texas.

Hunger in Texas

“1 in 7 people , including 1 in 4 children, struggle with hunger” — Feeding America

”There are over 4 million food insecure people in Texas. Food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods.” — Feeding America

Across Texas, the rising cost of food, housing, and utilities, coupled with high unemployment and low-wage jobs have increased the need for healthy food assistance.
