Hunger is not a concept. Hunger has a face and a name. Hunger is Jamie.

Jamie, the child next door, who wants to wake up and be able to have breakfast tomorrow morning but can't. Hunger is the family around the corner that is struggling to put food on the table because their paycheck barely pays the rent and utilities. Hunger is the senior citizen across the street who after a lifetime of work, now lives on a meager fixed income and often forgoes the foods needed to stay healthy. In fact, 11 percent of Iowa households in Siouxland and 13.6 percent of Nebraska households in Siouxland were food insecure in 2016, meaning they lacked access to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members. There are 12,310 children in the Siouxland area that are at risk of hunger. That is 1 in 5 children!*

With the resources of the Food Bank of Siouxland, we are able to acquire 13 pounds of food for each dollar we receive. We can purchase the food so that the children, the senior citizens, the ill, and families needing help can have the choice to eat, each and every day.

The Food Bank of Siouxland is dedicated to making sure that absolutely everyone in Siouxland has enough to eat. Together, we can make that happen. Together, we can solve hunger. Please send your gift now and be part of the solution to fight hunger in our community.
