Invest to Improve Ohio
Sadly, many of our neighbors are struggling to get by. The State of Ohio has the opportunity to do great things – like end hunger in our communities.
HERE ARE THE FACTS:
About 1 in 4 kids struggle with hunger in Ohio
Ohio ranks near the bottom (47th) for food insecurity.
Since 2002-20004, hunger in Ohio has increased about 48%.
Feeding America estimates that it would cost about $885 million a year to end hunger in Ohio. While that sounds like a lot to you and me, it is a reasonable amount for our state government. After a decade of tax cuts, primarily benefiting the wealthiest Ohioans, our state operates with $3.5 billion less in revenue. We could have ended multiple times over by now.
We can end hunger and much more when we invest in Ohio’s future.
