My daughters’ school hosted a food drive last week and as I explained to my daughters the importance of helping others and doing our part to make sure everyone has food on the table for Thanksgiving Dinner, my five-year old looked up at me with her big beautiful eyes and said, “because sharing is caring, right mom?” Yes, that’s right Love.
Recently, I’ve donated to a food drive at my work, at the November Race of the Month (Race to Fill the Pantry) and to our school food drive. I’m not nearly done yet. A few boxes or cans of non-perishable food items will not likely make a difference to you or me but if we all contribute just a little, think of the big impact we can make!
Hunger is a real problem in America with about 1 in 6 people struggling to find enough food to eat. For more about our hunger problem as well as information on food banks across the United States, visit the Feeding America website.
I will admit that I am not so good about remembering to make food donations outside of the holiday season and I do realize there is a need for food donations all year long. My regular grocery store usually has a food donation box and is accepting donations at any time of year and local food pantries are always in need.
I can’t imagine being hungry and not having food. Please help ensure that others have enough food to eat by donating whenever you can. As a very wise young girl once said, sharing is caring.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
