1.29 billion people in the world—more than the entire population of Africa–live on less than $1.25 (USD) a day. Most lack access to one or more basic human needs: sufficient food, safe drinking water, or adequate shelter. Children’s Hunger Fund provides nourishing food for hungry kids across America and around the world. They distribute Food Paks and other aid through local churches so that they may deliver hope to suffering children and families in their communities.
Every pair of socks sold to benefit Children's Hunger Fund represents 4 meals for children in need.
