Texas fourth in nation for hunger statistics

Dear editor,

Hunger happens 24/7 In Texas.

According to AARP Magazine, Texas has the nation’s fourth highest hunger rate for people over 50, 8.9 percent, exceeded only by Mississippi, Arkansas and South Carolina.

The national average is 5.7 percent.

We all need to keep the hungry in mind and donate to our local food banks and other organizations trying to take care of the homeless.
