Hunger among Americans is real. According to USDA, 50 million people in the United States, including 17 million children, are battling hunger and feeling food insecure. This is almost a 2% increase since 2019 due to COVID-19.
With a vision to make America hunger free, the Humanity First USA Food Security program seeks to reduce hunger and food wastage, provide food to our communities and raise awareness.
By fasting for over 14 hours a day in this month, all Muslims get a small taste of hunger thus giving many the realization of the pain endured by millions of starving human beings. But unlike many who go on to enjoy their favorite foods after breaking their fast in the evening, millions do not have the luxury of even one meal a day.
We urge everyone who receives this message to donate at least the value of one meal while you fast to fill a hungry stomach. Our supporters from other faiths can also try to experience a fast or skip a meal and donate that small amount to feed children, parents, and elders who are suffering because of food insecurity in America.
This campaign will not only support Humanity First USA's 25 food pantries and 3 soup kitchens across the USA but will also support many of our partner food banks and pantries in several countries.
