“Hunger makes a thief of any man.”
Pearl S. Buck
“Hunger is not a problem. It is an obscenity. How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
“In this country that grows more food than any other nation on this earth, it is unthinkable that any child should go hungry.”
“There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.”
Sir Winston Churchill
“I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for the minds and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I went to bed hungry many nights as a child. It was a Dream that dressed me up when I was ragged, and it was a Dream that filled me up when I was hungry. Now it’s my Dream to see that no child in this world ever goes hungry, certainly not here in America, the most bountiful country in the world. We can do better…we must!”
“There’s gonna be some stuff you gonna see that’s gonna make it hard to smile in the future. But though whatever you see, through all the rain and pain, you gotta be able to keep your sense of humor, you gotta be able to smile through all this…”
Tupac – Inner City ‘At Risk’
“35 million people in the U.S. are hungry or don’t know where their next meal is coming from, and 13 million of them are children. If another country were doing this to our children, we’d be at war.”
“Recent research shows that many children who do not have enough to eat wind up with diminished capacity to understand and learn. Children don’t have to be starving for this to happen. Even mild undernutrition – the kind most common among poor people in America – can do it.”
“When people were hungry, Jesus didn’t say, “Now is that political, or social?” He said, “I feed you.” Because the good news to a hungry person is bread.”
Nourishing Children is the Focus
It's a sad truth that millions of children in America go hungry -each day. Being 'hungry' doesn't just apply to eating food, there is also a deficiency in feeding the children with the emotional, educational, and relational support they need and deserve. Our programs are tailored to help address and meet these needs for the children that become involved in our programs.
Please have a look at our Kidz Needz programs to learn more our approach, meals, support, and related processes.
After the children learn they can trust and depend upon Kidz Grub team members the barriers begin to subside. It is only after this occurs that we can then begin to help them further. This goes beyond school work. The true value begins we we can mentor to them and help to explore their true potential.
