As a hunger advocate, I know that early childhood hunger is a growing concern across America.
Now, a new study sponsored by the ConAgra Foods Foundation in cooperation with Feeding America shows that 3.5 million children under the age of five are food insecure.

“The startling fact that so many very young children in this country do not have adequate nutrition necessary to grow and develop into healthy adults is heartbreaking. It is all the more tragic when one considers that it is also entirely preventable,” says Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America.
