If a child reports that they "did not have dinner last night", the parents should be contacted / investigated. I would bet that they have the money to buy the food, form earnings or social programs. The parents need the training, and perhaps the supervision, to ensure they are caring for their children. Providing all meals for a child and ignoring the parent’s obligation will only lead to further erosion of the family!

This is sad but true. While many of us think of what gadget to buy next, there are still children who are starving not just in America but all over the world.

There is.Although the video is exaggerated.It's not hguenr that makes you want' to eat.It's the craving.The cravings make it so you don't feel hguenr because it leads to hguenr.Although, the spray suppresses cravings.(So does warm water, but hey.)

Please consider inciudlng Food Not Bombs on your website. You might be surprised at how many people we feed. We share vegan and vegetarian meals and provide groceries in hundreds of cities in the United States. We also organized the first food relief in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. In 2001 Food Not Bombs was much larger then Food Chain. We have NO paid staff people and have been providing free food since 1980. We are very low key but worth supporting as we not only feed thousands of Americans we show respect for those eating with us and we work to end the causes of hunger. We also provide food to the hungry in many other countries of the world. You most likely have a Food Not Bombs group in your community.Love KeithLiz Reply:June 5th, 2010 at 8:38 pmSend us a pr and we will.
