“This is why I believe hunger is unacceptable: because a loaf of bread or a bag of apples is a small cost for giving someone hope.”

Why is Hunger Unacceptable?

Everyone has a story. Every month, I speak with dozens of clients face-to-face who receive food assistance from a CAFB supported food pantry. With each new person I meet, I’m more and more awed by the incredible strength of the human spirit. Some live in unimaginable hardship, and yet I see glimmers of optimism and hope in their eyes. Even people who must sacrifice dignity and pride in order to feed their children, still dream about a brighter future. This is why I believe hunger is unacceptable: because a loaf of bread or a bag of apples is a small cost for giving someone hope.

Listen to what the CAFB community says about hunger:

Tell us: Why is hunger unacceptable to YOU?
