Senator Feinstein is a pro-advocate for hunger-related causes. Senator Feinstein is an honorable leader for the State of California and America if not the world and is well respected in Washington DC and supported bills that helped her state. Hunger Free America was proud than as they are today to have selected her as an invaluable Consultant to the board for Hunger Free America since 2011.

Across the United States, a recognizable need has developed for the provision of outreach services for individuals and families. While the obstacles that must be faced by residents can be seen as immeasurable, some of the most pressing issues facing individuals today are the outbreaks of poverty, as a result of uncontrollable life circumstances. This is especially evident in underprivileged, low-income populations. Each year the statistics become more disheartening. Hour of Truth Ministry is devoted to it's Hunger Free America programs to reverse these disturbing trends. Today, we are capable of distributing food and other goods as necessary, and the program reaches out to over one hundred different families each month.
The poverty statistics are staggering. According to the Census Bureau, the nation's poverty rate is at it's highest level in decades. More than 46 million people one in seven Americans are living below the poverty line, 16.4 million of them children. Another 30 million Americans are just a lost job or serious illness away from joining them. And in the last six years alone, more than 20 million people have joined the ranks of those relying on food stamps to get by. The poverty rate for California 21st Congressional District is 23% a slight change since 2010 with a population of 73,475. The child poverty rate is 30%. This along is staging statistics and no one in Washington DC cares much about the little people facing poverty because they do not pay taxes or have salaries.
The fight these days are for low-income families who cannot afford to pay for the types of services rendered by those capable of delivering them. It’s sad when you see a child fighting sibling for the last piece of bread. Poverty is real and up close and in your face reality. The number of people on food stamps has risen above 47 million. Many families are barely getting by on public assistance due to personal or social causation. Therefore let's work together to build lives and a much healthier and stronger nation. Joint the hunger cause.
