Youth rally to fight hunger in Macon County and around the world

Hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined – about one in every nine people in the world. While the majority of the world's hungry people live in developing countries, for 2013, FeedingAmerica.org reported that 49.1 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 33.3 million adults and 15.8 million children.

While the national average for households in the United States classified as being food insecure sits at 14.6 percent, at 17.3 percent, North Carolina has the fifth highest food insecurity rate in the nation.

Locally, CareNet works year after year to build resources and access to tools to help fight hunger in Macon County.
