Today, I did not worry about my personal hunger. I am lucky. Not everyone is. 1 in 6 people are suffering from hunger, and that’s a problem.
The moment I got into work for a Staff Appreciation Day and realized I took the last bagel, I at the same time thought, “Good thing I got here when I did”. What was I thinking? Did I forget everything I learned when I joined up with other local bloggers for a #blogmob of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank last night? I should be thankful there were still donuts for the others to eat and that I did not have to go hungry. I sent my daughter to school with a full belly and two snacks for her 2 1/2 hours there. Others may eat their only meal between now and Monday at a school lunch while I will be enjoying subs, Kennywood chicken, and a baptismal picnic this weekend. My work provided me with an amazing lunch of foods from around the world and desserts out the wazoo. I should feel ashamed for the amount of food that I am sure we wasted today, and guilty for eating when I know others are suffering.
