Hunger Action 2016 campaign under way in Indiana
The Hunger Action 2016 campaign is under way in Indiana and across the nation. In Indiana, more than one million people struggle with hunger and may not know where they’ll find their next meal. That number includes one in five kids who may not have enough to eat. Emily Weikert Bryant from Feeding Indiana’s Hungry says September is a great month for the annual campaign because the holidays are just around the corner, and that’s when a lot of people tend to donate, but there are people in need now. Indiana is the 18th highest-ranking state when it comes to hunger. Nearly 15 percent of Indiana households are food insecure. Just over 6 percent of those are very food insecure, meaning they are skipping meals on a regular basis because they can’t afford to buy food.
