Shoestring Sharing: Make Every Month Hunger Action Month!

They say one becomes richer when one gives to others. Exhausted from the candor of my last post and all the worries that provoked it--I decided to check my email one last time before salvaging what sleep I could. And I found a message from my area chapter of The Greater Food Bank. They have kicked off their campaign to spread awareness that September is Hunger Action Month. HAM (ham? is that intentional?) is a worthy cause and please click on the link to learn how you can contribute. But also remember September is a long ways a way and hunger is all around us  now. Tonight I can close my eyes secure in the knowledge that I do have enough food --even if I may need to reacquaint myself with my old buddy Ramen for awhile. So, that being said, I will see what I can do between now and then.

First step: this week I will donate food to either the  GFB or an area shelter and make the deliberate move to donate only good non-perishables. I hate it when people donate just the stuff in their pantries they don't want to eat. You don't want it, so why would anyone else? The needy don't need your damn beets!

Coming soon...a list of community food banks for city centers throughout the United States.
