At our most recent PTC meeting at the school, one of the topics on the adgenda was Holiday Meals for Families in need. This time of year has always been inspiring to me to start thinking about ways our family could continue to help other family’s, our community and write more about my passion for sharing family meals with others!
One of the ways I’m excited to participate again this year is join in Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry to help raise awareness childhood hunger in the U.S. during this critical holiday season. I couldn’t think of a better cause to donate my time to.
I have to admit, I’m not quite sure about the details and how exactly it will all happen, but throughout the holiday season, I’ll be committing to writing about sharing a family meal “hopefully” almost everyday. At first I was a little worried about working full-time outside the home, and not having that extra time to sit and write about one specific topic everyday much less come up with individual posts. But family meal sharing is my passion, so I’m going to give it a try.
Share A Family Meal With A Family This Season
During my Share Our Holiday Table Series, I will share with you new recipes, re-visit some old traditional family favorites, and I will share ways our family is helping others this holiday season. All the recipes will be “family friendly”. I will also show you how you and your family can get involved this holiday season in family meal sharing.
Nearly 17 million children- that’s almost one in four – face hunger in the U.S., not knowing where their next meal will come from. That is a stunning statistic! During this holiday season, when we are all scurrying around buying gifts and enjoying celebratory meals with our families, I would urge you to take a few minutes to reflect on those less fortunate, including the 17 million hungry children. Please spread the word about ending child hunger, and if you find it in your heart, consider making a donation to Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry, no matter how large or small. Just $1 can connect a child to 10 healthy meals, and $25 provides 3 meals a day for a child for 3 months. Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry helped provide 4.5 million more meals to needy children in 2009.
I hope you enjoy my Share Our Holiday Table Series, but even more importantly, I hope you will help spread the word on childhood hunger so we can help solve this crisis together. If you want to tweet about this campaign, please use this hashtag #NoKidHungry.
