According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), one in five children in America struggles with hunger. That's 15.3 million children under 18 -- just in the United States. Although food insecurity is harmful to any individual, it can be particularly devastating to children who need to intake proper nutrition in order to thrive. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), adverse effects of food insecurity includes pooer health and a greater tendency toward depression and suicidal thoughts compared with food-secure children.
Hunger doesn't discriminate; it affects all ages, every ethnic group, every religion. That's why I created FROGs -- which is an acronym for Friends Reaching Our Goals. We are purposed to fight hunger by providing over 200,000 meals to the hungry and educating kids on making healthy food choices.
At the same time, our goal is to inspire kids to make a positive impact in communities.
