Follow the End Childhood Hunger blog - http://endchildhungerblog.org/ - to keep up on statistics and solutions to end hunger for kids in our lifetime. Alarming new post on the new Census data about hunger here.
Today is the first #twitterforfood event on Twitter for 2011. 1000's have skipped a meal during these events and used the savings to fund their local food bank or hunger organization.
Won't you join us today with this small act of connection with those that are hungry and experience in a very small way what they experience every day? Skip any meal and go directly to your hunger organization's website and donate the savings - $5, $10, $20 will do much more than you think in helping to feed those near you and across the globe.
This month we'll be highlighting those who feed school children. Many kids just get one meal a day from school, but there are many before and after school programs that are working to give these kids a chance at 3 meals a day. You can help, find one in your area!
If you don't know of a hunger site to donate to, there is a list of food banks and hunger organizations in the column on the right. They are sorted by region so you can easily find on at least in your state - or go international!
