I don't recall ever really going *hungry* per se but I do know we struggled to put food on the table at times. Many times dinner consisted of processed carbohydrate laden foods because those were filling and cheap.
- Hamburger Helper
- Top Ramen
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Breakfast for dinner (typically pancakes)
Several years around the holidays, I remember vividly being the recipient of food baskets, invites to the local VFW for free holiday meals, etc. Don't get me wrong I am not looking for pity or sympathy because in the end it has helped shape who I am today in a positive way. I know we are truly blessed in so many ways and I thank GOD every single day.
Because of these experiences growing up I have much more compassion for those that are less fortunate than I. And I have tried to be a huge advocate in helping those in need. Especially near and dear to my heart are the number of children that go hungry not only in the US but in many places. This is why I want to share the No Kid Hungry program with you.
The No Kid Hungry program has been battling the barriers of child hood hunger for the past 25 years. With people like you and me, they hope to accomplish something phenomenal by the year 2015; ENDING CHILDHOOD HUNGER.
I am not asking for money but rather for you to spread the word about this campaign and take the pledge. Add your voice, your blog, your twitter feed, your facebook to help end childhood hunger in the US.
It only takes a few minutes.
