Hunger Free McLeod is a group of volunteers that are working to help hungry people in Minnesota’s McLeod County. Even though there are government programs that provide food assistance to people in need of assistance, and there are other sources of assistance, there are still hungry people.
There are people who qualify for and are using the available programs but are not getting enough assistance to meet their food needs.
There are others who do not qualify for government assistance who are having trouble finding a way to afford to buy the food they need. These include:
· Children who are not getting enough food to eat when they are not in school.
· Families in which the bread winners are experiencing a loss of income due to job loss, reduced hours, reduced benefits, etc. In
these families it has become difficult to make house payments, to pay other bills, and to still be able to buy groceries.
· Elderly people on fixed incomes that are having trouble finding a way to buy food and to also pay their other bills.
These “missing meals gaps” are what Hunger Free McLeod strives to fill.
