All kids deserve happiness and a healthy living
We all think that child hunger is not as bad as most people talk about but the thing is it is very much real, and there are thousands of impoverished kids who need all our efforts and support to eat a well-nourished meal daily throughout the year.
Many children are living within or below the poverty line who have hunger as a significant issue and other problems which stem from both hunger and poverty. Many of the children have to rely on school meals and other programs such as summer meals where they can get free meals.
In the country, nearly 1 in 6 children do not consume sufficient food which puts them on higher risk to suffer from chronic illness such as anemia, asthma and other developmental impairments. Numerous studies and researches indicate that children who are not sure whether they will get adequate food are more likely to get low scores in examinations and probably repeat the grade.
Lack of healthy food prevents the children to recognize their true potential and perform according to their abilities. The inconsistency in the intake of food results in language, social and motor skill issues among the children. It is the essential right of every child to receive regular food and develop his/her concentration rather than thinking about whether they will even get an ounce of a meal.
Children are our future, and everyone must play their part in ensuring that child hunger is completely removed from the country. The food banks are most beneficial in providing a sufficient quantity of food to not only kids but adults and senior citizens too. These food banks also run numerous programs and initiatives which distributes nutritious food and even gifts among the kids.
In the summer time when children get vacations, the priority of the food banks is to send food trucks carrying fresh meals in low-income communities which have a large number of young children; this work is done to cover the reduced or free meals children get at school and end food insecurity. The food includes fruits, grains and vegetable meals which increases energy levels among the children and develop their eating habits.
The importance of volunteer work in ending hunger
Every person has two hands, and no matter how hard a person tries to accomplish multiple things at a single time, he/she will most likely fall short. In this world, there are tasks that an individual can perform brilliantly on his/her own, but many activities require individuals working as a team to achieve collective goals.
Volunteering is a collective goal that is impossible to fulfil on one’s own and it requires aspiring and active individuals who have an urge and wish to help the people who need assistance and support the most. Volunteering is a free resource for a charitable organization which helps to spread the mission and more importantly achieve the goals of helping the entire community.
The charitable organizations which are working to end hunger and poverty run food banks which requires a large number of volunteers who can collect, sort, and pack and then distribute the food to the respective communities where there is child, senior and rural hunger.
Not everyone is born affluent, and many people have to struggle with the tough hardship of hunger and poverty. The role of volunteers is to care and fulfill the basic needs of the less fortunate people of the society and country. Each volunteer extends a helping hand and does good deeds only for the betterment and progress of their fellow countrymen without wanting anything in return.
Becoming a volunteer in food banks is truly rewarding as the individual themselves the condition of destitute people and how a volunteer’s little contribution and effort can change the lives of the people. Many of the volunteers have a healthy interaction with the kids and senior and want to put an extra effort to reduce their miseries by providing them sufficient food supply to make them happy.
In times of hurricanes and calamities, the food banks are the only source of nutritional food for many families and households. As a volunteer, you can help people in the time of tragedy and loss. No matter if you are handing out food in the food pantry, packing food boxes or distributing them, your effort matters a lot and can improve the lives of needy people by giving them access to food which they deserve
