"Freedom from the yoke of hunger is the first concrete manifestation of that right to life which, although solemnly proclaimed, often remains far from being effectively implemented." -- Pope Benedict XVI, World Food Day 2011

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.  Hunger can be described as an individual-level physiological condition that may result from food insecurity.

  • CARES Food Pantry
  • Catholic Relief Services
  • Immaculate Conception in Druid Hill
  • Loaves and Fishes
