Let's End Childhood Hunger!

(Sorry about this, but I gotta get on a soapbox for a bit.)

Holy guacamole!  I know that not all kittehs have homes and get enough food, but I didn't know that one in five little sticky people in the US goes hungry! This is really really BAD!

Mom and I watched a tv show on the Food Network about it.  You can watch it here: Hunger Hits Home.

Mom was kinda pissed.  We live in one of the richest countries in the world; how come people here go hungry? She is gonna write to the politicians who represent New Hampster and tell them to get with the program, to help fix this problem. I know she's gonna send the local food pantry some green papers too.

You all know I'm not a big fan of sticky people, but BAST, I don't want them going hungry!

Thank you.  I'm gonna get off the soapbox now and go take a nap.

Hunger is a horrible thing for many people. Also what bothers me is there are extreme couponer who get stuff for nearly nothing if not nothing and no one eats it but the keep it. I do not have a lot but wish I knew how to coupon to help others. recently I was able to do it with pet stuff for the shelter ( cats do not like the brand and there was dog stuff ). I have also when I moved cleaned out the cabinets and gave away anything good. They should have a clean the cabinets day and donate current non used stuff to shelters. I will say I also think hunger is also not food education. I know many a parent who at the end on the month had no money for food. but at the begining did lots of fast food cause it was easy and they do not know how to cook and shop right

There is something totally wrong about a ituation where one in five are hungry and one in three are obese.

Mum gives food and green papers to the local food pantry too. Not good when anyone is going hungry.

That's why some of the meal packages from "Meals from the Heartland" stay in the midwest (including Iowa!)... It's horrible to think it's in our own communities, but we know it's true. The town north of us has started sending home backpacks full of food especially over the weekends.
