I'm lifting this from The Errant AEsthete who blogged about hunger in America on April Fool's Day last week. She movingly talks about the voices of hunger and the faces of hunger and the utter shame we, as "one of the richest industrial nations on earth" should feel.
At today's Easter service, my pastor pointed out how lucky we are to know where our next meal is coming from, to be unfamiliar with hunger, real hunger. It resonates particularly on a holiday when one is planning a big meal or attending a lavish brunch.
The EA strongly supports an organization called Feeding America. Before writing this, I asked my husband, a former VP Marketing with a major US non-profit organization,
"Where do I go to look up in depth info on non-profits?"
He sent me to GuideStar. where I searched their site for info. After reading about Feeding America, I am passing this on to you.
