Hunger Hurts | Human Right to Food Campaign

by Hunger Action Network of New York State

Food in the cupboard and in our mouths. 

It’s not just a necessity. It’s a human right.

The right to be free from hunger is internationally recognized. Yet, this summer, thousands of children in our neighborhoods went to sleep hungry. 

1.6 million NY children count on breakfast and lunch from school meal programs. Weekends and school holidays their stomachs often go empty. 

HELP NOW! Your support will keep us on the front line of hunger this fall – as we fight the battles to protect the very programs that FILL CUPBOARDS with FOOD and give people the dignity everyone deserves. 

We’re busy RIGHT NOW working with and for our partners – 3,000 emergency food programs and food banks across New York and nationally. We’re also partnered with faith, food justice, local governments and low-income community groups. 

Together, we can make sure food isn't taken out of the mouths of the hungry! Help fight against devastating cuts in federal SNAP/Food stamps.
