Hey, my name is Fodie Camara. My topic is hunger. I choose this topic of hunger because I want to know all about hunger and how it affects people in differents ways. When I learn it, I want to tell people and try to stop hunger. I will spread the information around to teach people about hunger and many different.
We have many different groups in Philadelphia to stop hunger or support food to programs. We have Stop Hunger Now, Coalition against Hunger, Philabundance. They all have one motto, is to stop hunger and feed people who don’t have enough meals in Philadelphia. They try their best to help people without food or in some type in trouble.
Stop Hunger Now works with international partners that ship and gives meals in country.
Volunteers come and package the meals. They serve 70% of its meals to provide programs such as school feeding programs, vocational training programs, early childhood development programs, orphanages, and medical clinics. Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger program that has been promised to stop hunger for more than 15 years. They working with school and after school programs will try to stop poverty.
Philabundance was created in 1984. Philabundance works with families hit hard by the recession. They work with seniors trying to make ends meet and they are the largest hunger group in Philadelphia. They are now able to address hunger through direct service such as food cupboards, emergency kitchens, shelters, and many more. Philabundance has take hunger really serious in Delaware Valley. They use Food donations, and the community. Philabundance helps 72,000 people per week.
People are hunger because of many different reasons. Like 5 billion in benefits cut in food stamps. Having no money can’t buy you food, so how else are people going to eat. If they don’t have no money and food stamps benefits are getting cut, how else suppose to get feed. There are even more cuts coming like, the house wants to take 40 billion dollars over the next 10 years. So they want to take even more money from benefits each year. So that is going to create even more hunger people in Philadelphia. There are a lot of effects of being hunger or not having one meal. Some effects are hunger people get sick a lot, have a chance to repeat the same grade, get horrible grades, and many more things.
Lastly, I really choose this topic of hunger because I want to know all about hunger and how it affects people in different ways. I want to get this information stuck in my brain, and teach other people about it. Feeling good about my self spreading an important topic in my school. We have so many different groups and programs to stop hunger, so we can do it. Believe in our self and we don’t have to see the pain people go when they are hunger.
