In your backyard…

Eat. LOVE. Inspire was created to bring awareness to the hungry. Many times we visualize  the TV commercials of those in faraway nations starving to death, but really we don’t have to look that far. I just stumbled across a recent article that shows, once again, how pervasive it is in our backyards.

“National food insecurity rates went virtually unchanged from 2012 to 2013, the latest available figures from the USDA, at 15.9 percent and 15.8 percent respectively. The number, a measure of whether all household members have access to enough food for an active and healthy life, hasn’t returned to its pre-Great Recession levels of 11 percent. That means over 49 million Americans still aren’t getting enough food to eat. ”
