Hunger in America
Transcript of Hunger in America
About our topic
Definition: Hunger is a feeling of discomfort or weakness caused by lack of food, coupled with the desire to eat.
Hunger in America is a clear problem that not many people feel is, our goal is to help educate the people of America and help them realize that this is a clear problem that needs to be ended.
Food insecurity is the state of being unable to access a sufficient amount of nutritious food.
In 2013, 49.1 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 33.3 million adults and 15.8 million children.

Hunger in America
By: Alex Ruiz,
Music and art were a huge part of this social injustice and was able to help us realize the big part it does in helping others take action.
What could be changed over time is that we actually try and help those in need. If interested we are able to give food to the hungry.
Another way that change would happen is if people are able to help us spread awareness to others.
How did we make social change?
Hunger in America
Where do we stand?
We are a group of elite students who are trying to spread a message about a social injustice that effects others in America. We are focusing on hunger in America because we feel as if it is very important for those around us to know how people are losing their lives. We began doing our research on what are the causes of hunger and what can we do as a community to change this step by step. We want to be able to inform those around us and let them know how they can help as well. We don't want to have to see this social injustice continue and even though we are only a group of students with no power at the moment we can stand up to what we believe needs to be changed. We started small by making a website, Twitter, Instagram, and a Facebook account to help globally spread our message and be able to interact with others who are trying to see a change.
We began by making different accounts on social media to be able to spread our message around to others.
Art as a protest
1. During the first three days the website was up, it started with many views then dropped. That might be because of the website being new and was still not 100% complete.
2. The website had started going back up after that.This could be from tweeting our website link on our Twitter.
3.On January 30th it dropped. It could have dropped because we didn't advertise or send it out to people or post anything out on our social media.

To expand our social media
Continue to fight for hunger in America
Have a food drive and donate to food banks and/or shelters.
Attend a food kitchen and help those who are hungry.
Keep working on our website and trying to spread awareness about this social injustice.
More than five years into a economic recovery, with unemployment falling, and the stock market at record high, millions of Americans can't afford basic nutrition.
Hunger in America is a huge problem but it isn't treated like one which is what has sparked our mission to educate and try and cause change.
Song: "One World, One Song" By: Dionne Warwick and Joe McElderry
Part of 2nd verse:
"We want a world where hunger is no longer,
Where children grow stronger every day;
The right to share in all the earth can give us
Is everyone's - and we will lead the way."
Music as a message
