Hunger

FB_IMG_1440692202445.jpgThere are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society.

I’ll be starting next week in West Memphis Arkansas

Food Insecurity

48.8 million Americans—including 13 million children— live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As a result, they struggle with hunger at some time during the year.

Food-Insecure Families

Food insecurity—the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food— exists in 17.2 million households in America, 3.9 million of them with children.

Rates of food insecurity are substantially higher than the national average among households with incomes near or below the federal poverty line, among households with children headed by single parents (35.1% of female-headed households with children are food-insecure) and among Black and Hispanic households.

Food insecurity is most common in large cities but still exists in rural areas, suburbs and other outlying areas around large cities

− 25 % of households with children living in large cities are food-insecure.

The typical (median) food-secure household spent 27 percent more for food than the typical food-insecure household of the same size and composition.

59% of food-insecure households reported that in the previous month they had participated in one or more of the three largest federal food and nutrition assistance programs: SNAP (formerly food stamps), School Lunch and WIC

What can you do to help, go to your local school and pay a month on a child’s account. Get involved in your community and find those who are in need of assistance then help. Get extra oatmeal,beans,rice, and poptarts to carry in your car and if you see a need give.

Happy New Year

I’m wishing each and every one of you a Very Happy New Year and I hope that your next year will be awesome. Please remember to live, laugh, love, to he generous with your praises and compassionate to those who need it. Smile at people and most will smile back and feel better without knowing why. God is great.

New Year

Hi, I’m Angela, And this is my mission and my dream: Riding for Childhood Hunger Awareness. If you are interested in what Renegade, Buck, Schatzie and I are doing, please read on.
But what exactly are we doing, you’re no doubt wondering? I will be traveling alone with my horses and wagon. 8000+ miles, from the East coast to the West coast and back, on a continuous ride.
There are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society. Let’s help our children in America become the best they can be.

Day ?

I’ve lost count of the days I’ve been out here. And I’m leaving it that way, I think I’ll live on horse time now. People continue to awe me with their generous hearts. I’ve had some great hosts since I’ve started our Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek in America. I’ve not always mentioned everyone that have hosted me. Because there have just been to many good ones. Thank you for being what Americans are supposed to be.
