I am fundraising for food-insecure children in the Dallas, Texas community. The money raised from this fundraiser will be given to a food bank in the community.
There are almost 158,000 food-insecure children living in the Dallas, Texas community. “The USDA defines food insecurity as a state in which “consistent access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources at times during the year” (What Is, n.d.).
The Effects of Food Insecurity: The food-insecure children have a higher risk of mental problems and chronic diseases such as asthma and anemia. The food-insecure children also have a higher risk of behavioral problems like anxiety, depression, and aggression.
The Purpose of this Fundraiser: The purpose of this fundraiser is help provide food to food-insecure children in the Dallas community so that they will be able to grow and develop properly. Although I won’t be able to help all food-insecure children in Dallas, I would like to help as many children as I can.
