34.5 percent of households with a child age 18 and under are food insecure, an increase of about 130%. Battling a global pandemic has only highlighted the harsh realities of food insecurity and increased the number of people dealing daily with its challenges. Food insecurity is also a major contributor to Social Determinants of Health that impact the health of individuals throughout our community. The YIS Stock the Shelves Food Drive will provide much needed canned and non-perishable foods to local food banks and food pantries across the world.
Our hope is to get as much help from our community to help tackle food insecurity. We hope to gain the support of partners in our community such as HonorHealth, The Global Project Team, International SOS, among others in battling food insecurity.
