I’m taking a small break from talking about parties and crafts today to talk about something very important and dear to my heart: child hunger.
Did you know that one in five children in America are food insecure? One in five! This number breaks my heart and brings tears to my eyes. And it’s not neglected children that need assistance. It’s often children from good homes that just need a little help getting by in today’s economy.
As a mom of two boys, I can’t image not being able to feed them. And not just feed them, but feed them healthy foods so that they can concentrate, learn and grow. I’m a firm believer that healthy eating habits young, are the foundation of a healthy life. These children, so many children… don’t even have the option.
