Do you ever get frustrated when you get nagged to finish your meal? In that instance, do you ever stop and think about how many people would LOVE to be in your shoes? A lot more than you think. Food insecurity affects more than 42 million Americans and 1 in 6 children in the US. And yet, 40 percent of all food grown, processed, and transported in the United States each year is discarded. Crazy, right?
As an intern at Move For Hunger this summer, it has too become my mission to fight this national issue. On August 12th I will be running MFH's sponsored 5k called Run For Hunger. Please show your support by donating to this important cause while I, Kelsey Palmisano, make moves to fight hunger. In honor of World Food Day (Oct. 16, 2017), my goal is to raise $1,016.17. And like they say, power in numbers. So, I need your help in joining the MOVEment to end hunger and food insecurity in America today.
You can support the cause by donating to my page (every little bit counts!), educating yourself more about this issue (https://moveforhunger.org), or hosting a local food drive in your area (we'd be happy to help organize everything - just contact us for assistance!). Thank you for your support in helping me help the hungry :)
