Hunger And The Holidays
Hunger hurts year round, but during the holidays it is especially painful. Images of lavish holiday meals and treats splashed across every screen only add to the hunger pains. Our organization partners with food banks, growers, community organizations, and schools to get nutritious short dated food diverted to the hungry while it is still good. Grocers only sell blemish free perfect fruit that isn’t ripe yet. Ripe produce, the fruit with a couple brown spots, a funny shape, or grade B size is still delicious and nutritious. It is shameful to dump good food into commercial dumpsters when one in five kids in the U.S. go hungry especially during the holidays. We can change this. Let’s feed the hungry not landfills!
