Inaugural Buy One Give One Campaign

2013 May 21

Mothers and fathers struggling to feed their kids make gut wrenching choices when they rely on food banks to feed their gluten free child. Most often, they must choose between food they know will fill their child with pain or not filling their child’s belly at all. Stomach pain is only one side affect the kids suffer. “…food insecurity and hunger together with other correlates of poverty, can dramatically alter the architecture of children’s brains, making it impossible for them to fulfill their potential.” Child Food Insecurity: The Economic Impact, Feeding America Regular dependence on local pantries is becoming the norm rather than filling a gap for emergency situations. “Emergency food from pantries is no longer being used simply to meet temporary acute food needs. A majority of the clients being served by the Feeding America network (54%) have visited a food pantry in six or more months during the past year.” Food Banks: Hunger’s New Staple, Feeding Americas Founder of the National Gluten Free Food Bank Movement I believe we, as a community, can create better options for kids and their families across the country. I also believe you’d like to make a difference, if only you knew how. So, here’s how you can transform the life of a child on a gluten free diet.
