September is Hunger Action Month – a month where people all over the United States stand together with Feeding America to fight hunger. According to the USDA, in 2019 more than 35 million people in the U.S. experienced hunger, and households with children were more likely to experience food insecurity. The Cambria County Backpack Project is an organization working to eliminate childhood hunger in Cambria County – one backpack at a time. We spoke to Kristen Villarrial about the program.
