hunger in our community
In the fight against childhood hunger, statistics place Bonner County as one of the hardest hit areas in Idaho. With poverty levels on the rise, along with the current economic situation, the need of our local children has never been greater.
Ask any local educator or daycare provider, and they will tell you the same thing: kids are going home to empty pantries and uncertainty around their next meal. They will also tell you that a hungry child is a child who is not ready to learn.
The effects of food insecurity go beyond hunger: it prevents kids from reaching their full potential. A child without access to proper nutrition is more likely to miss school due to illness, has a decreased attention span, and lacks the enthusiasm for learning of their peers.
Hunger is an epidemic that threatens children’s futures and the futures of Bonner County and all of Idaho.
Let’s Solve This
In the US, over 11 million children face hunger every day. *
18% of Bonner County children are food insecure. *
Every day there are over 1500 hungry children in our community. *
- One in five children in our area do not have adequate access to food.
* USDA Economic Research Service, 2018
But childhood hunger is solvable.
Food For Our Children wants to end childhood hunger in Bonner County and help put children on positive paths to success. With absolutely no overhead costs, FFOC uses 100% of all donations to purchase food for Bonner County children.
With your help, we can make a difference.
