USDA: More Americans going hungry



With Thanksgiving just around the corner, these numbers are saddening. The Marin Food Bank has a list of ways you can help.

Just so wrong in this bountiful country. Thanks for the link.

I occasionally go to a neighborhood church (very very liberal Lutheran) and will be serving Thanksgiving meals to our local homeless after putting together food trays to be delivered to our housebound elders. We always give generously - and give throughout the year but I always wonder why, in this land of plenty, so many have so little. I find that I can't catch the shows on the Food or Travel channel that are about people pigging out - the portions are obscene. One meal could feed 5 people in most parts of the world.
