If you are looking for volunteer opportunities, you may want to contact humanitarian services in your area that work towards ending child hunger. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that about 10.5% of households suffered from food insecurity during 2020, and many families with children experienced significant increases in food insecurity during the pandemic. There are many service opportunities to combat this issue. Here are just two ways you can help children in your community.
A child hunger sponsorship program provides needy families with food essentials, clean drinking water, and educational resources. Your role as a sponsor can help end child hunger in a particular region.
A sponsorship is a relationship between a benefactor and a beneficiary. A child hunger sponsorship matches each donor with a child. Humanitarian groups that orchestrate sponsorship programs may seek donations that will improve the living conditions of a group of poverty-stricken citizens.
