If you’re like most people, your stomach rumbles with a gnawing feeling when you get hungry. If you ignore this physical signal to eat, you might experience more significant consequences—lightheadedness, headaches, and irritability for example. Fortunately, your next meal or quick snack quickly alleviates these symptoms. For most of us, hunger is temporary.
Now imagine that you are hungry and there is no next meal. There is no quick snack. And you’re not sure when your next meal will be because you just used your last few dollars to put gas in the car, buy diapers, or pay a school fee for your child.
This is reality for thousands of our fellow citizens every day.
