Thanksgiving = Food, literally. For most of us we will be enjoying lots of family traditional foods, eating until we are the stuffed ones! We are blessed...and what a huge blessing on this Thankful Thursday. And thank you Sonya over at Truth 4 The Journey for hosting each week.
But, and I mean big BUT, a recent report from the USDA states 16 percent of American households are "food insecure"... an increase of 13 million people over the previous year. How is it possible that over
49 million people across this country face hunger??? 49 Million!
So on this day of Thanksgiving, let's work together to help these people who do not have the resources to be "stuffed" today. Here are 2 ways to help, and I'm sure you can come up with more, be resourceful:
•Donate to Feeding America. For every $1 donation, Feeding America helps provide 7 meals to men, women and children who are facing hunger in the U.S.
•Support your local food bank. Food pantry shelves all over this country are running low.
I am holding a "Comments For Cans"!! For every comment left on this post through Sunday night, I will donate one canned good item to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank.
Angie and Shannon are also participating in this endeavor this weekend with me, in fact it was Shannon who invited me to join them. We challenge you to do the same. Write your own "Comments for Cans" post on your blog and donate to your local food bank.
What a difference we can make together, leave your own imprint on your community! Be extra Thankful Today!
Sooooo, Ready, Set, Comment!!
