Many children from low-income families here in town are struggling with meeting their most basic nutritional needs. Statistics indicate that approximately 21% of children in the greater Chicago are considered “low income” meaning that many of them struggle with hunger and/or have limited access to nutritious foods.
Poor urban communities are the ones who are most at risk. Many of which live in ‘food deserts’ or ‘low income, low access areas’- with limited access to grocery stores with fresh produce. These communities have a higher concentration of convenience stores and fast food chains, thus leaving them with processed, low-nutritional value foods which are often the only alternatives available, therefore further aggravating their nutritional deficit.
“As members of our community, we all can have a positive impact on our children’s lives and help build a brighter future for them.”
