1 out of every 4 Kids in Kansas City Might Not Eat Tonight.

In partnership with Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization, Harvesters, a BBB Accredited Charity, has released a study examining food insecurity in every county in our country.

Food insecure children lack dependable access to enough food to be healthy.

In the Kansas City metro, 1 out of every 4 children does not have enough food.  Without enough food, children can't adequately grow phyisically, mentally, and socially - and that threatens everyone's future.

Think Johnson County is a big exception?  Think again.  Nearly 1 in 5 kids in the wealthiest county in our region might not have something to eat tonight.

Look to Harvesters for ideas on what you can do to help hungry kids in Kansas City.
