HELP END CHILDHOOD HUNGER
The recently released report, Hunger in America 2010, revealed that in the area served by the Cleveland Foodbank, 1 in 9 people access emergency food programs, and 34% of them are children.

Our parish Advocacy Committee is encouraging everyone to reach out to our legislators and encourage them to pass strong child nutrition programs and ask them to sponsor the “Easy Access to Meals and Snacks Act.
