FPA’s FOOD & FAMILIES INITIATIVES

On average, 21,000 children die each day worldwide (14 children per minute or 7.6 million children each year) from poverty-related issues. One of the cornerstone effects of poverty is malnutrition. Malnutrition greatly reduces the effectiveness of the immune system, thus increasing the susceptibility to disease while also impairing development (UN/WHO). The ramifications of chronic hunger are far reaching and impact not only the economic stability of impoverished families but the communities in which they live.

When you provide essential food needed for survival, you allow vulnerable families the opportunity to focus their energy, time and skills on endeavors aimed at building opportunities for economic growth and improved access to education.
