Truman Middle School fights hunger with new campaign

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Truman Middle School started a campaign called The Real Hunger Games. This is to reflect the idea that the real hunger games is the fight against hunger that millions of America face on a daily basis. The school is now raising funds and collecting food to provide at least 50 Truman families with a full Thanksgiving meal. The school’s counselors are working hard to identify families in need at Truman so that they can help them.

New Mexico is ranked #1 in America in child hunger and #2 in adult hunger. One in every three children in New Mexico don’t have enough food to eat. Over 110,000 people in Bernalillo county live in food insecure households.

Hunger in Albuquerque is a crisis that demands a response. Together we can make a difference.
