March 2009 Archives

On Thanksgiving 2008, I went to visit my daughter and grandchildren in California. While there I was disturbed by the long lines of people waiting to get food from different food pantries. I didn’t realize the magnitude of people who are hungry.

When I got back in New York, I researched how many food pantries there are in the city and across the United States. And there are thousands of pantries and more going up each day because of the rate of unemployment increasing drastically. These pantries are run by churches, human service organizations and out of homes by every day people trying to help.

With this awareness, I began to check my mail and saw that every day I was receiving requests from all over the country for donations, especially to feed the hungry
