How does hunger look like in America?  Could you and I easily depict it?  I am not sure!  In our society it may be more and more difficult to identify it.  I invite you to take a moment and watch the video below.

 

 

These statistics are daunting, but what will happen in 2050 when the predicted world population will reach 9 billion people? How can America have a hunger problem when 33 million tons of food reached US landfills in 2010? 

 

What is my role in preventing hunger in America?

 

  • REDUCE MY FOOD WASTE  Because I rarely plan my weekly meals, I often find myself buying more groceries, than I consume. The unconsumed food is simply discarded and replaced with new food.  To improve my habit, I have decided to plan my meals, buy fewer groceries, and replenish my food stock when needed.

  • GIVE  I want to be involved even in a small way.  Please join me by visiting Feeding America and find potential ways to give and help alleviate hunger in America.  Each contribution counts :).

  • TALK WITH MY FRIENDS  Sometimes it is difficult to keep up with everything around us.  In a world inundated with information, we can become detached and uninterested in what’s relevant to us and our society, therefore I have decided to talk with my friends about this issue and get them involved as well. Will you join us?
