Hunger in America
Over 40 million Americans, more than 12 million children suffer from hunger. One in four families in Maryland is food insecure.
ICA tackles hunger in our community. We are committed to helping families in need.
A staggering one in four Maryland families face food insecurity.
The ICA team distributed food from the Miller library every Saturday and Sunday during the months of may and May and June, 2020.
ICA distributed approximately 40,000 lbs of food from the Miller Library. Since then ICA has expanded its food distribution efforts - the Lentil.
COVID - 19 has created an environment of fear and suffering. Fear for our lives and that of our loved ones, suffering on a scale not seen in a century. Our world has changed. Food, shelter, stress, anxiety and worry about the basics of life are the new normal for so many of our neighbors. Things we once took for granted are no more. Hunger and food insecurity is on the rise. ICA is working on a number of community service projects to help alleviate suffering in our communities. ICA's on-going programs include: Food Distribution, Mental Health Awareness. ICA tackles hunger in our community through its pantry which we have lovingly called the "Lentin"
