Hunger in Cheshire can easily go unnoticed because our hungry neighbor often looks like us: he lives on the same street; she may drive the same car; they may wear the same clothes. Our hungry neighbor may be a co-worker, your child's classmate, your elderly neighbor across the street, or the person standing next to you in the checkout line of the grocery store. You may not see hunger in our community, but the reality is that hundreds of people in Cheshire face hunger on a daily basis.
