Giving Season

Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the US. If you were among the many that were able to stuff themselves with more food than ever should be consumed in one sitting and still have leftovers, congratulations. But, many more aren’t that fortunate. As temperatures drop, those less fortunate more desperately need some assistance. If you have the means, consider sharing your abundance this season with people in need. Despite what republican mythology suggests, people who have less than you aren’t inherently worse people and do not deserve to suffer.

If you’re not sure where or how to go about sharing your bounty, please try some of these sites:

“The Feeding America nationwide network of food banks secures and distributes 4 billion meals each year through food pantries and meal programs throughout the United States and leads the nation to engage in the fight against hunger. Contact your local community food bank to find food or click here to read about public assistance programs.”

“It doesn’t take a big commitment to make a big impact. Together, with millions of other food bank volunteers, your time adds up and makes a difference for your neighbors struggling with hunger. Help the Feeding America nationwide network get food in the hands of those who need it most.”

“I have set up this directory of Food Banks, Soup Kitchens, and non-profit organizations committed to fighting hunger. The information is collected manually and is accurate to the best of my knowledge. Keeping this free resource updated is a collaborative effort and will benefit families and individuals in need. Thank you for your support.”
