Think of five children you know. Mine can be two of them, why not.
Of those five children, it’s likely that one of the five is affected by Childhood Hunger (based on a stat that I was given for this post).
Now think about you as an adult. How does it feel when you are hungry? Not so good, right? Likely, you’re able to get yourself something to satisfy that hunger (and if you’re not, head on over to www.pittsburghfoodbank.org to get some assistance – it’s a judge free zone). But that feeling of hunger is not so fun. When I am hungry, I am mean and unstable. I can’t think. I can’t do anything but crave food NOW.
Last week while at BlogMob, I got to taste the delicious Harvest Stew (recipe above) that was being demonstrated to patrons. It smelled AMAZING and tasted even better.
On Monday night, we made this for dinner. Yup, I cooked collards and didn’t do a bad job of it.
While touring Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank (my third tour there in a year), this image made me ask, “Are you with me?”
And really, I want to know if you are with me. Hunger is a real issue in our nation, and one each and every one of us can help with. Here are some of the things I learned during #BlogMob #Hunger that can help our neighbors.
If you are keeping up with the Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project, you are fully aware that September is Hunger Action Month, a month full of events to make us aware of the impact of hunger.
One of those events, #BlogMob #Hunger will be my favorite. No, it’s not because I am lucky enough to co-host the event with Elizabeth and Emily, two Pittsburgh bloggers (but that’s pretty awesome). No, it’s not because I’ll get to network with other bloggers who share my passion. No, it’s not because I love working with the Tote Bag Project.
