Freedom From Hunger Kicks Off
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) Its the most important meal of the day, and now breakfast is helping to serve as a message for one of the most important crises facing Americans, hunger.
On Saturday, HACAP kicked off its Freedom From Hunger campaign by serving bowls of cereal and other breakfast items from are vendors at NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids.
One in four children dont know where their next meal is coming from, Amanda Pieper, and organizer with the campaign, said. One in five adults and seniors dont know where their next meal is coming from, and its only rising. Its definitely a big issue here right in our community, but also in our entire service area.
To help raise even more money to fight hunger, organizers also sold 100 custom made bowls.
