Pammie’s Sammies Is Participating in ‘Feed a Billion’
If you want to give back to those in need, Pammie’s Sammies is leading the way.
Hunger Is a Huge Problem
Hunger is a worldwide issue that affects people here in the U.S., too. Here are a few sobering statistics from Feed a Billion’s website:
- A person dies from hunger every four seconds.
- All over the world, 795 million people face malnutrition or undernourishment.
- The most dominant group of people affected are children.
Plus, according to the USDA, over 42 million households were food-insecure in the U.S. in 2015. That means tens of millions of families weren’t sure they could feed their entire household and sustain healthy living. At times, they weren’t able to acquire enough food for everyone.
Plus, another 10.9 million adults lived through periods where they were not able to procure food at all. These are startling facts when you think about our country – a developed nation with a relatively stable economy.
Because of these facts, and because we care deeply about our local and global communities, Pammie’s Sammies wants to help. As a food business, we want to feed the world and wipe out hunger. Join us in our mission!

Who Does Feed a Billion Support?
The mission of Feed a Billion is to literally feed one billion hungry people by 2020. This organization works with sponsors who fund five meals per like on their Facebook page, and 10 meals per share.
The funding goes out to food distribution partner charities, who work tirelessly to help feed people all over the world.
According to their website, Feed a Billion has donated meals to the hungry in Kenya, India, the U.S., and other countries. They have provided 1.5 million meals to people in need.
