Join Us This Afternoon for a Twitter Chat on Hunger
Nadine Blackwell, who is featured in the 2014 Hunger Report, surveys the contents of her refrigerator (Joseph Molieri/Bread for the World).
Fifty million people in the United States—including one in four children—struggle with hunger every day. But ending hunger in this country is possible. "If we decided we really wanted to do it, we could wake up one morning in 2030 and be living in a country where hunger is rare and temporary, not the shared experience of millions of Americans that it is in 2014," reads the opening line of Bread for the World Institute's 2014 Hunger Report, Ending Hunger in America.
Today at 4 p.m. ET, Upworthy and Take Part will host an important #UpChat on Twitter to discuss hunger in America, and solutions to the problem. Bread for the World and Bread for the World Institute are participating in the chat, as are chef Tom Colicchio, director Lori Silverbush, co-creator of the film A Place at the Table, and, hopefully, you.
Join in the conversation by following the hashtag #UpChat from your Twitter account beginning at 4 p.m. Ask questions, talk about your personal experiences, and trade information and solutions.
To learn more about hunger in America—and how we can end it in our lifetimes—be sure to watch the documentary A Place at the Table, and read the 2014 Hunger Report.
