Fun Fore All to End Childhood Hunger

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).

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. keep reading
