According to the USDA, 17 million people are living with low food security that is up 100% from 2000, when only 8.5 million people were living in food insecurity.

If more food companies would take initiatives like this, we could fight hunger and malnutrition and help, the homeless, unemployed and working
poor to feed themselves and their family.
