More than 1.1 million people in Washington, USA, rely on local food banks or emergency meal programs.
According to the American Journal of Public Health, children from households that are "food insecure" -- not having enough to eat on a regular basis -- are more likely to struggle in school.
David Bobanick, executive director of Rotary First Harvest, a Program of Rotary District 5030, helped develop hunger relief projects supported by Rotary clubs in other states, including California, Florida, Louisiana, and Oregon.
Bobanick also serves as president of the Access to Healthy Foods Coalition.
