Uncommon Giving- Feeding America: Hunger in The Land of Plenty with Ross Fraser and Ryan Munder
The latest data from the United States Department of Agriculture shows that nearly 49 million Americans experience “food insecurity” each year – that is, they’re not sure where they’ll find their next meal. That staggering number includes nearly 17 million children. Feeding America provides low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive.
As the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, our network members supply food to more than 37 million Americans each year, including 14 million children and 3 million seniors. Serving the entire United States, more than 200 member food banks support 61,000 agencies that address hunger in all of its forms.
Ross Fraser is Director of Media Relations for Feeding America and as a spokesperson for Feeding America, Ross has spent much of his time traveling and doing hands-on work in various soup kitchens and food pantries throughout the US. Prior to joining Feeding America eight years ago, Fraser worked on social justice health issues for the American Medical Association.
