Children & Hunger

Did you know that Children facing hunger are twice as likely to repeat a grade in elementary school? Hunger can cause stomachaches, headaches, depression, anxiety and decreased ability to focus. Research shows that hungry kids also struggle socially and behaviorally. Studies have found that children from food-insecure families are also more likely to drop out of high school before graduation.
