World Food Day

Today is World Food Day - a day dedicated to raising awareness about world wide hunger.

Did you know that one child dies every five seconds from hunger or malnourishment?  That there are over 1 billion people in the world without enough to eat?  That nearly one in four children in the US live in families who struggle to put food on the table?

I encourage you to make a difference by donating to your local food bank.  Non-perishable sources of protein (canned meat or fish, beans, etc.) are most needed.  Click here for locations where you can donate food for the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank.
