About NO MAS HAMBRE

Last year nearly 50 million Americans went hungry, yet for Latinos the figures are even grimmer. About 26.2% of Latino households faced food insecurity, almost twice as much as other Americans. Yet for many of us, this overwhelming health disparity remains a dark secret. Few issues impact us and our families so directly, so viscerally. It’s literally a matter of life and death. But hunger in the Latino community is rarely discussed.

LATINO Magazine has addressed this lack of awareness and engagement through an initiative called NO MAS HAMBRE. Its objective is to raise awareness of hunger in our community through articles in LATINO Magazine, our website at NoMasHambre.com, and our annual NO MAS HAMBRE Summit in Washington, DC. This event will bring together Latino community leaders, hunger relief experts, government officials, corporate executives, and ordinary people to develop a Latino anti-hunger agenda.
