Fast for 52 with UCOM
Are you as ready for change as we are--changing the way we think about food and hunger for instance? Beginning Giving Tuesday, November 29th, will you do by choice what so many Americans must do out of necessity: go without food? Can you skip a meal a week for the next 52 weeks and donate the money you would have spent to support our neighbors as a part of our #Fastfor52 Campaign?
48.8 million Americans live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, they struggle with hunger at some time during the year. One in 5 children in this country lack consistent access to food. That is a staggering 16 million children. 22 million children eat free or reduced lunches at school.
Can our neighbors count on you to show your support and solidarity for those in this country struggling with the most basic of needs? By skipping one meal a week and donating $10, you can support some of the most vulnerable people in our community. As a part of the #Fastfor52 Campaign you will be a positive voice for change and a powerful advocate for the food insecure.
To join the campaign, simply visit the donate portal and select how you'd like to give. You can donate in monthly, quarterly, or annual installments.
