April Food Day!

This is a post from Things That Inspire about April food Day...

Did you know that...

One in eight Americans are at risk for hunger?

Four million Americans receive assistance from Feeding America each week?

Children who are hungry have slower emotional, social and educational development?

Millions of elderly Americans go to bed hungry every night?

So many people who never thought they would need food assistance are now asking for help from their local food bank. They have lost their jobs through the massive down-sizings and layoffs. They have exhausted all of their resources. Elderly people on fixed incomes are finding that costs are out-pacing their incomes.

It has never been more important to support causes like these; so many people are pulling back from charitable contributions at a time when the need has never been more acute. Please consider making a donation to your local food bank today.
You can find a local food bank through the Feeding America website.
Another option is to make a direct contribution to Feeding America through their secure website. Any amount would be sincerely appeciated. Even a $1 contribution will provide 10 pounds of food and grocery items to men, women, and children facing hunger in the United States.
Thank you to Meg from Pigtown Design and Chris from Easy and Elegant Life for coordinating April Food Day.

  1. This is unbelievable! I knew that many Americans struggle, especially now, but I had no idea things were this bad. But even Norway, one of the most wealthy nations in the world, has trouble taking care of every citizen. It's really sad! Thanks for posting this, it's important that we bloggers use our voices to help the less fortunate.

  2. Thank you for posting about this Judith. It's a sad reality and we seriously need to all do our part. The joke's definitely on us...
    Bless your heart Ma belle Judith for bringing up this important subject. Have a wonderful day:)

  3. Hi Judith,
    What a moving post today. As you know, I am here in Canada but the same dire situation applies, we all must take a look around and see who needs help. Your post reminds us of this, good work!

  4. Dearest Judith,

    What a powerful post, I too had no idea how bad things are. I will try my best to do what I can.

    Kindly, Miss Kris
