Take A Bite Out of Hunger With FirstFruits

The Take a Bite Out of Hunger™ campaign was created by FirstFruits Marketing of Washington with the goal of helping feed the underserved while bringing attention to the problem of food insecurity in the United States. Through the campaign, they hope to educate consumers about food insecurity in the U.S. and have a multiplier effect inspiring consumers to support your local food banks. The problem of hunger isn’t just about being hungry. It’s about food insecurity, or not having regular access to safe, affordable and nutritious foods. In 2010, 15% of all U.S. households were food-insecure. Of those, 33% were children, 96% reported that the food they bought just did not last and they did not have money to get more, and 94% reported that they could not afford to eat balanced meals. So what can you do? Purchase specially marked bags of FirstFruits apples to provide donations of fresh apples to a local food bank. Need some inspiration for all of your new apples you’re bringing home with you to help others? We’ve got you covered:
