Welcome to San Francisco: cable cars, hillsides, and coffee shops. Welcome to the lives of 197,000 San Franciscans: poverty, homelessness, hunger.
Everyday, I walk the streets of my city and think about how fortunate I am to live in such a wonderful place, but it never occurred to me that a fifth of my people struggle everyday to make ends meet. That’s right—a fifth. According to the US census bureau, that statistic is shockingly true to reality.
I work with revolutionhunger.com as a youth advocate because we believe that there is a way to fight hunger through active organization and participation within our communities and beyond! Come join the fight to end hunger at revolutionhunger.com
