It’s something I hear a minimum of three times a day…
“Mommy, I’m hungry”
“Mom, can I have some strawberry milk?”
“Mom, I would really like an apple.”
It happens every day.
And, without giving it much thought, I go to the pantry or the fridge and oblige.
It never occurs to me what it would be like to NOT be able to meet her request for nourishment.
To look into her baby blues and tell her no when my heart so wants to tell her yes…
Today was the last day of school for Miss Add.
A summer of freedom, fun and childhood awaits her.
But summer breaks mean something different to some kids in the U.S.
Ya see to those kids, school lunch was their lifeline… their only meal each day.
And, for many, those days with a guaranteed lunch are coming to close for a long summer.
One in five kids in the U.S. don’t know where their next meal is coming from. That number is one in four in Indiana according to Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.
By entering in codes from those labels, you can help provide 5 million meals to hungry families.
It really is that easy.
