And…We’re Back!

September is Hunger Action Month, and last year I felt like I let it pass by without having done anything significant, either through my words or my deeds. Hunger is something I feel strongly about, but I’m not sure how to translate that feeling into action. So maybe by blogging about it, by starting a dialogue with other people and figuring out how to make a difference together, I’ll feel like I’m actually accomplishing something.

There are so many issues under the huge umbrella of hunger. Maybe that’s why I’m having a hard time trying to touch on all of them. I’m interested in nutrition and wellness overall, so hunger, especially childhood hunger, is just one piece of this puzzle that I’m attempting to put together. I also love to learn and I’m a voracious reader. but I don’t feel like all of this information does me any good if I don’t act upon it in a tangible way.

Will you join me?

Many people have said it before, but it bears repeating: In this land of ours, where people produce (and CONSUME) so much, it is absolutely baffling to me that any individual, any child, would go hungry. It’s heartbreaking.

There are plenty of ways to get involved, from simply educating yourself to donating time or money, whatever your heart tells you is the right thing to do. I’m still figuring it out myself. But I’m happy to offer information, links to resources, whatever, just to get the ball rolling. We’re already seven days into September, so let’s go!
