Where do you live? Do you know how many of your neighbors are hungry? It’s THOUSANDS. And it is overwhelming. You want to help. You want to be in involved. But how?
Feeding America has started a month-long campaign. Every week I will be talking to you about hunger. I am going to get you involved. I am going to make it easy. You are going to FEEL GOOD about this.
Your new superpower is ending hunger.
This week I want you to find out how many people in your state are fight hunger right now. You can go to this amazing page created by Feeding America and select your state from the drop down menu.
Plug in your zip code and email address (knowledge is power, people) and then find out what local organizations are waiting for you to help them.
Your mission this week is to TALK ABOUT THIS. Spread the word on your social networks. Tell your school. Talk to your neighbors.
