A Hunger Awareness Event
Play chess against the 2013 New York State High School Champion Joshua Colas and raise awareness of hunger in Westchester County.
The Food Bank for Westchester estimates 200,000 Westchester County residents are hungry, or are at risk of hunger. More than half of them are seniors and one-third are children under the age of 18.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, working people are the largest segment of the population in need of food assistance, and that segment just keeps growing… they are hard working adults who have lost their jobs or are underemployed; seniors who can’t survive on their retirement incomes; the disabled, who cannot work; and children. Hunger creates and exacerbates health problems, causing deteriorating productivity. We are all impacted by hunger!
