View Diary: They Are Hungry Every Day (12 comments)

  •  Today, we are having a blizzard in the midwest. (12+ / 0-)

    It is cold, windy, and raw. Those who are homeless and without proper shelter or warmth have a greater need for our help. I hope people will look into how they can be supportive of the groups and organizations that try to fill those needs.

    The most surprising thing to me that I learned while you worked on this excellent diary is the value of donating actual $$$ to the food pantry in the community. If I imagine how much food I could buy with a $20 donation, it might partly fill a grocery bag. If I gave that $20 as a donation to our local pantry, they can buy about 12X as much with the same money.

    Not all pantry groups have the same purchasing power. But, they all have some kinds of breaks.

    Thank you for bringing this important topic to us. It would be awful to be hungry every day.
