This year for our Annual You’re Not Allow Alone Fundraising Event, we at Real Women of Gaming are teaming up with Player vs Hunger to help to give back to at-risk communities struggling with food insecurity and hunger.
Food Insecurity is the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. 21.4% of Children in the US are at risk of food insecurity and the highest numbers of households with food insecurity are those with children headed by a single woman.
One “bad month” can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Lay-offs at work, unexpected car maintenance or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. Working families across America face countless situations that can result in food insecurity and hunger. Add to that – 1/4 people who are food-insecure are unlikely to qualify for federal nutrition programs
The Mission of Player vs Hunger is:
“We believe everyone deserves good nutrition, a full stomach, and the relief of not having to worry about where the next meal is coming from.
Player vs Hunger’s mission aims to make this a reality by providing healthy supplies and financial support to food banks and pantries in food-insecure communities using the power of gaming.
Through the collaboration of streamers and gamers, virtual food drives will allow us to raise money and supplies that will be delivered to the food banks and pantries in need. Our team will do the research, and make contact with the hungry communities to find out what’s needed most and deliver the help to the food-insecure areas.
Hunger does not discriminate and neither do we, our end game is to grow Player vs Hunger into an inclusive gaming community that will expand to help our local neighbors that live in hunger all over the U.S.” https://www.playervshunger.org/mission
