We were inspired by Actress and Hunger Is Ambassador, Viola Davis. Her experiences and commitment to helping end childhood hunger struck a personal cord and further affirmed our commitment to help end hunger in America overall.
We’ve been doing this for some time now. And this year, we made a commitment to do it more regularly. We committed to donating a bag of food every month to help end hunger in America. And, we’re starting local.
Recent data from Feeding America stated that 42 million Americans lived in food insecure households as of 2015. Families need help putting food on their tables. They need help to survive. So, each month this year, we’re committed to donating a bag of food every first Tuesday, our #CharityTuesday, to help feed families.
In February, our donation bag may go to one family or six separate families. Regardless, they will help put food on tables. “Our goal is not to touch everyone, our goal is to touch someone. To change someone. Just one person. If you get good at that, do five, then do 100…” (Seth Godin, Best-Selling Author)
We’re striving to make a difference to end hunger in America, one family at a time.
We found a local food pantry on Food Bank NYC’s website at www.foodbanknyc.org.
