Talking to children can be enlightening. They are smart little creatures. Just today I spoke to mine about those in other countries and even in our own going hungry and not getting the right nutrition they should be getting.
Because my husband has a pretty decent job we’ve always considered ourselves very blessed to be able to afford the things we need. The boys are at the age now that they know how it feels not to get everything they want but they were not at the point where they had the full understanding of what it meant to go without. So to have had thisconversation was very enlightening. They asked some very good questions and seemed to better understand what it truly means not to have and that hunger is real.
In and effort to help those in need,Walmart, Feeding America and ten of the most recognizable food companies in America have joined forces and are Fighting Hunger Together in an effort to help reduce hunger across the nation. They are making great strides but can always use your help.
After talking with my children about the different ways we can pitch in to help we headed over to www.walmart.com/hunger to vote for a partner agency in our local community. After doing so, we all felt like we had done some good in our community by helping those who need food just as much as we do.
You can help too!
