Food insecurity among children affected about 2.9 million households, which included about 6.1 million children, or about 8.4 percent of all U.S. children.

10.5 percent (13.8 million) of U.S. households were food insecure at some time during 2020.

1 in 6 US children are at risk for hunger

How We help

In the midst of comfort and affluence, many children in our local communities rely on school-supplied meals for their nutritional needs during the week but will not be assured of healthy meals on the weekends. In response to this need in our community, volunteers from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples (UUCGN) work closely with school counselors to identify children who would benefit from weekend food security.

Over the past several years, our program has grown from supporting a single elementary school to supporting five schools during the school year.
