More than 37% of DC households with children report experiencing "food hardship" – not having enough money to buy the food they need – the highest rate nationwide. But here is the irony: child nutrition programs, such as school breakfast, are underutilized. Providers often don’t know about them, are unsure how to access them, or encounter bureaucratic roadblocks. DC Hunger Solutions educates the public about District hunger, poverty, and obesity; expands understanding of "food deserts" (neighborhoods without access to full-service grocery stores); and promotes awareness of federal nutrition programs. By collaborating with schools, nonprofits, and front-line providers, it also ensures that those who serve needy families can connect with existing nutrition programs. DC Hunger Solutions works closely with the city government to make sure that food policies are effective and collaborates with other stakeholders to coordinate resources. Since 2002, it has catapulted DC from 20th to 2nd in the nation for the number of low-income students starting the day with school breakfast. We have the resources to end hunger: let's put them to work!
