Why is The Athletes' Corner Fighting Hunger?

14,300,000

As of 2018, there were just over 14 million people experiencing food insecurities

50,000,000

As of 2020, the number of people experiencing food insecurities has risen to around 50 million


1 in 9... 1 in 7...

Before the coronavirus pandemic, 1 in 9 people struggled with hunger, including 1 in 7 children.

1 in 6... 1 in 4...

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, 1 in 6 people may experience food insecurity in 2020 - including 1 in 4 children

Reliability & Support

Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs and need to rely on their local food banks and other hunger-relief organizations for support

Matthew 25:35-40

On top of the alarming hunger statistics mentioned above, another major reason The Athletes’ Corner is feeding the hungry is due to our focus on faith. The Athletes’ Corner feels strongly that feeding the hungry is something Christ has asked us to do, given the verses found in the Bible in Matthew 25: 35-40 (ESV).

35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,

36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’

37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?

38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?

39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
