On Saturday, December 21, 2013 against a backdrop of skyrocketing unemployment and home foreclosures,Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr., the Rainbow PUSH Coalition and community partner  Mariano’s /Roundy’s Fresh Market will again give away Christmas food baskets.

 

This Christmas, times continue to be difficult for many, said

Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr.”

 

We have over 50 million Americans in poverty today and more children live below the poverty level. At some point in their lives, over half of all U.S. children will be on food stamps which suggest problems of poverty and hunger in this country.

 

This cycle of poverty must be broken--- for their good and ours!

 

Immediately following the live International Broadcast today Rainbow PUSH Coalition will distribute food baskets generously donated by our community partner, Mariano’s/Roundy’s Fresh Market at the Rainbow PUSH National Headquarters 930 East 50th Street Chicago, IL 60615
