Project Feed Me

project feed me

 

1 in 6 Americans are hungry this very minute. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.

Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger.  These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.

It’s time to educate ourselves about the causes of hunger in America and the world.

We have the power to help reduce these numbers and to help our nation and other nations. The most effective way to help is to donate food to your local food banks. Better yet, donate a few hours once a month to help stock, sort and hand out food. There will never be a time where a food bank has enough food or support. With the starvation rate increasing on a yearly, monthly and daily basis, food banks are becoming over whelmed with the amount of families in need. These food banks are closing and families/individuals are being turned away. Our nation MUST do better than this!

The idea behind Project Feed Me is simple: DONATE FOOD ITEMS. This is an 8 week project that will have weekly check ins and themes. I want each and every one of you to join with me and to help reach out to those that need it the most. Each weekend I will be posting a “theme”. It will make this project fun, exciting and maybe even challenging. If you have a blog, tumbler account, twitter account, face book account or any other social media platform I encourage you to add the Project Feed Me button to your page! Your homework: to recruit 5 people to join you and this project! I will be posting numbers on a regular basis. Last time I did this we had 500 donators… let’s try for 1000!!! I know we can do it!!!

Just remember these food rules:

  • Non-perishable food items
  • Do not donate food that has been opened, has broken seal or expired
  • Let’s try to keep it healthy and clean, too =)

The sign up sheet is below. I will leave the registration up for a week or longer. Tell your friends, your family, your co-workers… Tell EVERYONE! Be proud that you are helping the less fortunate. It’s amazing how positive you feel when you start caring for others! =)
