So today I attend a Feed America Twitter party. The reality is anyone of us could need the help of Food Banks it could happen just like that.. then before you know it. You are there. For me, My husband lost his job over 2 years ago. I can understand choices and and lack of options. No American should be hungry. Period. So take the time and read this entire post, I ask you as one American to Another.
The following are tweets by people on twitter.
The some of FACTS about American Hunger
@foodbankccs: This September Speak Out Against Hunger on behalf of the 49 million people in America who face hunger. #hungeraction
DresdenPlaid: My family was one of the 49 million families food insecure. I’m involved with #HungerAction so others know that they are not alone.
nokidhungry: At #NoKidHungry, our goal is to end childhood hunger in America by 2015.
@nokidhungry: It’s going to take all of us across the country to end hunger. Follow advocacy groups, share, educate.
What can do to help end Hunger in America?
@foodbankccs: Asking local businesses to hang a #HungerAction Month banner or post.
@imstephdotcom We used to donate snacks @ school for kids who came in w/o breakfast. Not their fault.
@mrlady: First thing is teaching my kids to help, donate, give, and show kindness to those in need.
@suebob: I’m lucky enough to have an employer who matches my contribution to Feeding America.
@mrlady: We had one mom in our ‘hood who cooked breakfast for any hungry kid 1X/month. That woman changed my life.
@Kat4Obama: In my house we donate what we can every month to our local food bank.
AdaOrie1: When one person is hungry it impacts everyone one of us.
@mrlady: When you donate food, donate REAL food. Give people a chance to have real meals. Give the best, not the leftovers.
@mrlady: HONESTLY talking about hunger issues, trying to take the shame out of it.
@mrlady: You wouldn’t believe the difference giving a child a real meal can make in their whole lives.
I know I spoke of NoKidHungry on my blog in april and I am asking you again do something with your family to change someones lives, teach good food not the old cans no one wants. Donate money that can help, consider the cost of one meal eating out. Or Dine cause .. Wear Orange on September 6th. and tell others why you are. Small steps can change America.
