Alesia’s Food For Thought

Alesia Pickney graduated from the National Honors Society at New Castle Jr./Sr. High School. She is currently a Senior at Hampton University. Alesia is very passionate not only about her school work, but also giving back to her community.

Help create a hunger free county and nation by supporting Alesia’s Food For Thought Campaign! According to a research study done by Feeding America, one of seven individuals in Pennsylvania struggles with hunger. There are over 50 million people who struggle daily to put food on the table. As of 2014, Pennsylvania had a food insecurity rate of 14.3%. More importantly, Lawrence County has a population of 90,000 and 13% of the population are food insecure. In support, you will not only transform the mission of the Campaign, “Fighting hunger one child at a time in the New Castle Area” to a reality, but also positively help lower the food insecurity in Lawrence County.
