4/8/13 Food Bloggers Against Hunger: Please Join Us!

20 Mar

“What Would You Do If You Were Hungry?”

Nicole Gulotta wants folks to think about that and think about the millions of Americans who live on what we used to call food stamps a.k.a. Electronic Bank Transfers (EBT) from the govermment. Their food dollars work out to $3-$4 a day. I cook cheap, but not that cheap.

So Nicole started Food Bloggers Against Hunger, as a way to encourage people to take action. On April 8th, food bloggers around the United States (including me!) will be posting items related to hunger in the U.S., sort of donating their blog space to the cause.

I am still developing my April 8 post and learning more about the issues. Click on the above logo and find out what you need to do to be part of this. It’s easy! And important.

You can go to Share Our Strength to learn more or to take immediate action, send a letter to Congress , or check out the trailer for A Place at the Table. (Jeff Bridges and Tom Colicchio are among the participants!) I hope you will join Nicole and me and a whole lot of other food bloggers in this very important effort!

    It’s amazing how hidden hunger issues have become in the United States.

    This is an excellent idea, having been one of those hungry solo mums I fully support the cause. not being a food blogger though can you make sure I know when you pop yours up and I shall link it to our readers. The thing is we need to look after our own people, i am lucky as i can grow extra meat and vegetable plants for the families in my area who are so grateful for the help which I always call a christmas present so no-one feels that it is charity. i used to hate charity when I was poor with all the kids but I would say a deep and hearty thank you anyway because it was a meal for the children. I think we need to encourage people to do something concrete, talking about it is one thing, but how about we find a wee family and just be there and help them and invite them over to eat once a week.. and drop off a cake loaded with eggs on wednesday. Anyway, don’t forget to tell me when you do this so i can tell others.. c

      I will certainly let you know! One of the things it has made me think about it how much time I spend trying to get food on my own table and trying to educate people around me about food, but I feel as though I don’t actually DO anything for anyone. This must be corrected. Thanks for telling your story and sharing your thoughts with me!

        you are welcome.. I think you probably do more for people than you know just by putting food on the table and feeding those around you.. c
