According to Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States, at least 10 percent of the children in each state, or 12 million children nationwide, suffer from hunger.
Hunger affects nearly every community. Almost 12 percent of rural households and nine percent of suburban families struggle with food insecurity.
Amelia High School’s Thespian Troupe #6332, Drama Club and Student Council teamed up this year to help alleviate hunger in their community by participating in the 2009 Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat (TOTS-EAT) food drive.
TOTS-EAT is the International Thespian Society's (ITS) annual nationwide community service initiative to collect food for the hungry.
