FOR EACH CASE PURCHASED, ELARA HELPS PROVIDE A MEAL TO A PERSON STRUGGLING WITH HUNGER IN AMERICA
WHY WE DO IT
Question: Which one of these children came to school hungry?
Statistically, at least one of them, since 20% of children go to school hungry. Maybe it’s the child sitting next to yours. Hunger can affect a child’s ability to learn, not to mention his or her overall health and wellbeing.
Question: What’s more important, medicine or food?
Both. Unfortunately, more than 5 million seniors 60 or older face hunger, often having to choose between food and medicine.
Question: After work, this woman volunteers at a food pantry. True or False?
She may actually go to a pantry to receive food. Many hard working people still have trouble putting food on the table. And you may not know that by how they look.
