A few weeks ago I have shared some shocking statistics that over 16 million children are struggling with hunger in the United States. You can read more on my blog here. Yesterday, on Thanksgiving, I was so thankful that I was able to share time and food with my family and count our blessings. Today I wanted to teach Lex that you are never too young to share.
We decided that we were going to go through our very full cabinets and clean out all the unopened food that hasn't been touch for awhile. Sometimes we take for granted that there are warm meals on the table and snacks to snack on. While Lex is only 13 months, it is never to old to teach him that we can share with others. And if we do this frequently through out his life then he will learn the significance of his actions.
This is just some of the food we found in our cabinet to donate. If you have discount grocery outlets, like we have Sharp Shopper, then you can even buy food to donate if you have nothing in our cabinets. It does not have to cost a fortune to share a meal with someone. There are so many ways you can help out locally. If you are from the Lancaster area then here are a few ways you can donate:
These are just a few of the ways you can donate food, time or money to help out hungry children in Lancaster. If you are not from my area, many churches have food bank resources where you can find out how you can help!
