BLUES AGAINST HUNGER SOCIETY

The Blues Against Hunger Society is dedicated to feeding the hungry. Our mission is to produce blues concert food drives that promote the donation of non-perishable food in lieu of a ticket. The food donated to support the community food bank or charitable service provider feeding those in need. Blues Against Hunger Society believes hunger and blues come from the same origin - poverty. Blues overcame being a music of the impoverished to become an inspiration and element of all western music since. It's with this power of the blues, that we fight to overcome hunger.

FACTS:

  • According to the USDA, in 2015, 14.5 million or approximately 20 percent of children in the U.S. lived in households where they are unable to access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life. 
  • According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2014 more than 45 million people or 14.5 percent of all Americans, lived below the poverty line. In 2015 in Mexico, 46.2% of the populationwere living in food poverty.
  • A third of all families headed by single women were in poverty last year -- that's 15.6 million such households.
  • Poverty causes hunger. Not every poor person is hungry. Millions live with hunger and malnourishment because they simply cannot afford to buy enough food or cannot afford the farming supplies they need to grow enough good food of their own.

The Blues Against Hunger Society takes a supportive approach in this fight, which means addressing the hunger with food – gather food and distribute food to those in need. This support and relief can be enough to help those in need to improve their communities and build better futures for themselves and their children.
