Received this e-mail today from Shenna Bellows (D. ME) U.S. Senate camaign:
We have a Thanksgiving assignment for you this week.  Join Shenna in calling for federal reform to end child hunger.

1 in 4 kids in Maine under age five are now living in poverty.  That’s according to a new report issued by the Maine Children’s Alliance.

But we can change that:

We can raise the federal minimum wage, so working families can provide for their kids.
We can restore funding for programs that feed our kids like the SNAP/Food Stamp Program.
We can get involved at the local level to demand change nationally.

It’s a conversation we need to have now, and it starts with you at your Thanksgiving table with friends and family.  Let them know why you’re supporting Shenna Bellows for the United States Senate.  Let them know that she will be a Senator who stands up for Maine’s kids and our future.

We cannot afford to wait.  Our country’s economic future depends on the health of our children today.

Shenna visited a food pantry in Machias yesterday.  People there told her that the status quo is unacceptable.    

Join Shenna this Thanksgiving in working for change.  Don’t forget to take food and donations to your local pantry.  (There’s a list here.)  Then, at Thanksgiving dinner with your family, start the conversation about Shenna Bellows and her leadership to advance fairness, freedom and our future.

Together, we can make a difference.

Thanks for all that you do,
Julia, Katie Mae, Marissa, Sarah and the rest of Team Shenna

Here's a list of food pantries in Maine you can donate to:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
