The Freestore Foodbank Asks Supporters to “TELL 10” for Hunger-Free Families

This November, the Freestore Foodbank, a member of the Feeding America network, is taking part in Hunger-Free Families, a national campaign inviting supporters to TELL 10, and help raise awareness about domestic hunger by sharing stories of real American families facing the reality of hunger.

More than seventeen million American families struggle with hunger. Almost two thirds of clients served by Feeding America’s network of food banks live in family households. In all, more than 49 million Americans live in food insecure households (32.4 million adults and 16.7 million children).

Showing support and “telling ten” is easy: just visit www.HungerFreeFamilies.org. Raising awareness is the first stop towards creating real change. Hunger is a solvable problem, if we all reach out to help one another; at this time of thanksgiving, we can give more than thanks: we can give hope to families in need.

To learn more about Hunger-Free Families, and the work that the Freestore Foodbank and Feeding America do all year long, you can visit the national website at www.HungerFreeFamilies.org, or for local information, you can call or email Jennifer Ebelhar at 513.482.7539 or jebelhar@freestorefoodbank.org.
