In 2015, nearly 42.2 million Americans live in food insecure households, including 29.1 million adults and 13.1 million children. Even more shocking is the extension of food insecurity in our backyard. Ohio is 1 of 10 states that has statically higher household food insecurity than the U.S. national average. Living in a food insecure home most often means deciding between food and utilities.
Right here at home, nearly 130,200 Miami Valley residents reported food insecurity, an increase of 4500 individuals since 2014. Members of our community have the hard choice of choosing between food for their children or keeping the lights on.
This is why Alto Health Care Staffing is proud to partner with the the Food Bank of Dayton to help our community become hunger-free. We invite all our clients and employees to join us in an effort to help the needy this season, and we are here to help you make it happen. We know our compassionate, self-sacrificing employees choose their career because they love to help others, and Alto is proud to share the same sentiments.
