CONSIDER WHAT'S AT STAKE -- HELP THREE SQUARE FOOD BANK STAMP OUT CHILD HUNGER!

One in seven Southern Nevadans are food insecure – that’s more than 279,000 people who don’t always have enough to eat, and more than 109,000 are children.

Inadequate nutrition in childhood has been shown to have a debilitating effect on a child’s cognitive function, often leading to under performance in school and lower academic achievement.

Children who grow up in poverty stricken families suffer two to four times as many health problems as their counterparts who do not experience hunger.

Children between the ages of five and seven, living in food insecure households have nearly three times the odds of stunted growth.

More than 62% of Clark County School District students are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs. 

Right now, you can help Three Square combat this problem in our community through Bag Childhood Hunger.

Your donation today will take us one step closer to reaching our $2,000,000 goal that will provide 6,000,000 meals.
