We came upon a post on the needs facing City Harvest, a food relief agency in New York City, and it made us wonder if PR people are mindful of food needs in their own areas. If people are hungry, PR skills are a means of helping to gain awareness of their plight. Hunger is harmful for a lot of reasons.

Since the recession began in 2008 the demand for food has increased by 25 percent across New York City. There's been a 35 percent increase in visits to food pantries by children, and a 26 percent increase in visits by senior citizens. What's been happening at the food relief centers in your own area. Do you know where they are? Hunger can be a silent stalker.
