food is essential

There was a reminder on Facebook today that there are 24000 people daily who die from hunger.  I don't know, or care, where this number came from.  It works as a catalyst.

For those who might want to do something, might I suggest Heifer International, Feed The Children, Samaritan's Purse, American Red Cross, ANY local food bank, ANY local homeless shelter, if you attend a church ask your pastor/priest/rabbi/monk/sectarian leader, etc. about your church's outreach program. There are literally hundreds of opportunities here and abroad waiting for your helping hand or checks. GIVE!

Your local utility probably also accepts donations of any amount to be added to your monthly payment that will go to local shelters and assistance with utility payments for those in dire need. Also Meals On Wheels can hook you up with local opportiunities to assist elderly shut-ins.
