What would be your solution for a hunger-free Arizona?
#ImagineaSolution is a conversation, bringing to light many important issues related to food insecurity in Arizona. Food Insecurity is limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods. It is caused by many different factors, but the most common is the lack of financial resources.
1 in 5 Arizonans are forced to make a choice between paying for rent, medicine or food on a regular basis. As a result, 1 in 4 children in Arizona don't consistently know where their next meal is coming from. This impacts health care costs, our local economy and education. When diving into each of these areas it becomes clear that food insecurity affects everyone.
“I can imagine a solution to hunger and poverty, because I know it's possible. I know that we can work with our elected officials and with our neighbors in making sure that all children, all families, and all seniors have access to good, quality, nutritious food.” – Angie Rodgers, President & CEO of AAFB
Through a series of videos we bring together individuals from various industries to dive into this complex issue and provide the inspiration to imagine new solutions. We encourage you to follow the stories and join the conversation to help us create a hunger-free Arizona! #ImagineaSolution
See our latest video diving into SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program):
We know that ending hunger isn’t easy. But SNAP (what used to be called Food Stamps) certainly helps people in need – about one million of them in Arizona. And about half of those are children. This #ImagineaSolution video looks at SNAP and how this safety net program helps those who need a little help getting food on the table, including personal stories from Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, and Benito Almanza, the state President of Bank of America.
