• Right now, more than 500 million people are living in “absolute poverty” and more than 15 million children die of hunger every year.

• World Health Organization estimates that one-third of the population is underfed and another third is starving.

• Even in the United States, 46 percent of African-American children and 49 percent of Latino children are considered chronically hungry.


What can you do to help?

I’m a firm believer that every little bit helps move us toward a solution. The Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Florida is always seeking donations. Here are some small ways that you can make a big impact in Florida:

Donate Food – Most people donate food around the holidays, but the fact is that people are hungry year round. The food bank accepts food donations Monday thru Friday from 8am-4pm. Food must be unopened and unexpired. The most requested items include meat, beans, rice, and peanut butter.

Donate Money – Did you know that for every dollar you donate to Second Harvest they can purchase $53 worth of food?! Think of how much of an impact a small monetary donation can make!

Donate Services – Do you have a special skill or service you can provide? Why not lend your professional skills to helping the organization with an in-kind donation?

Donate Time – Volunteers are needed daily to help with sorting food at the warehouse and throughout the year for special events. Call for more information: 904.353.3663 ext. 223

Also, be thankful for the food you have. Especially today with people losing their jobs and homes it’s so easy for us to take for granted the things we are blessed with. In solidarity, I will be fasting and praying for those who are hungry on this day and hope that the unity of bloggers everywhere will help raise awareness about hunger.

By reading this, you are part of the difference we are trying to make in the world! Share the inspiration with others! I heavily encourage you to join Bloggers Unite today and make a post about hunger on your blog.
