Food Insecurity

Did You Know?

About 1 in 4 people in the US have faced food insecurity during the pandemic, with Black and Hispanic families suffering at a rate nearly twice as much as white people

Fed Up draws inspiration from the Black Panther Party’s Free Breakfast for Children Program, which laid the foundations for federally funded school breakfasts.

The US produces enough food so no-one needs to be hungry.

Fed Up is a project of survival; a coalition project of the Triangle Circle of the NC PPC, NC Raise Up, and Carolina Jews for Justice. We are uniting the poor and dispossessed while meeting acute community needs for food. We know it is not enough just to distribute food or PPE because we must (1) question why so many people are struggling in the first place and (2) organize to end those conditions that leave more than 140 million people poor in the richest country in history. Martin Luther King Jr. implored us to ask: “why do we pay water bills in a world made up of two-thirds water?” Well, why can’t families have dependable access to food when we already produce enough to easily feed everyone?
