Often times, our heart strings are pulled when we see the commercials for providing aid to children in third world countries. The children who are living in poverty, malnourished and struggling. But how often do we stop to ask ourselves Are there struggling children in my community? In my neighborhood?

The answer is YES. There are 4,783 children in Cullman County who experience food insecurity at some point throughout the month. In response to this staggering number, our Knapsack for Kids volunteers have pulled together and connected other churches and civic groups to begin serving in their local district. We call these helping rings, “Halos of Help.” We can end child hunger in Alabama, but we need your help to make this dream a reality.
