No Kid Hungry...

I remember what it's like, being hungry that is, and sometimes standing in the free food lines as a little girl with my sisters and brother...government cheese isn't too bad really. I remember our nice landlord, when rent was hard to come by for my parents, who just knew and would bring bags of food for us. I remember us being so excited to cook up some concoction on our little red propane coleman stove, even tho we were so aware that having no electricity was somehow different from our friends' lives. I remember always having love, and each matter what. And  for those people who reached out a helping hand to me and my family when I was a little girl....I remember.  And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I don't know if I could ever give back enough, but in any small way I can I will always try....

Even in this little way, big things can happen to help hungry children.  Today I took the "No Kid Hungry" pledge at the Share Our Strength site. And will continue to remember....

Take the No Kid Hungry Pledge

I believe that no child in America should go hungry. By pledging today, I add my voice to the national movement of people committed to ending childhood hunger in America.
