Millions of Americans who participate in the nation’s food stamp program are limited to an average of $3 or $4 per person each day to supplement their food budget.
What would you do if you were hungry? I can’t imagine the suffering of so many mothers going to bed at night wondering if tomorrow they’ll be able to feed her children.
This is a horrible realty in many parts of the world unfortunately. That is why I would like to support this wonderful initiative that’s trying to bring awareness to this situation and offer at the same time a few ideas.
We all should try to do something to help fight hunger, all around the world. I know that this campaign is targeting hunger in America, but I’ll like draw attention to my country situation.
In Panama, about 4 out of 10 people live in total poverty (36.8%) and 16.6%, of the total population, lives in extreme poverty. In rural indigenous areas, almost all of its inhabitants are poor (98.4%) and extreme poverty is 90% of the population.
Charity is not enough, we need to get involve and donate a bit of our time to do something good for the people in need around us. Remember that “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty”.
The only way for hunger to be eliminated in America is if policies change, so it’s important we make our voices heard.
The goal of this campaign is to inspire action, so please do one or both of the following suggestions:
1. Take 30 seconds and send a letter to congress asking them to support anti-hunger legislation. The more letters we submit, the better!
