    World hunger day; what does it mean to you?

    Do you see many people who cannot afford three meals in your locality?

    No I do not see them but I know they are here, others have told me about them and I think it is time we demand our government do something about it. We have been keeping up strangers and feeding them for many years and some turned out to be terrorists and ignoring our own starving here in America. It is disgraceful. We need to make our voices be heard. Soon.

    COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS: It means that things could be much worse, many face starvation and worry about there next meal, even being rationed meals makes one more conscious of hunger.  If you ever faced these situations you can understand hunger on a greater level than those who haven't.

    Yes.  I teach outdoor education classes at some urban schools.  A high percentage of the children at these schools (sometimes 70%) receive free and reduced lunches.  Some of these students also get sent home with backpacks of food on Fridays after school so they have food over the weekend.
