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.
I am officially West of the Mississippi River today. Tomorrow I continue to head West through Arkansas.
About a week ago I stayed at the Rescue for four days resting my boys Renegade and Buck. They treated my boys like they were princes visiting. I would like to recommend these folks to anyone looking to volunteer or just sponsor a horse. Please check them out. These people rescue hungry and or abused horses who desperately need help
My route for next week will be starting in West Memphis Arkansas. This is just a possible route as I am very flexible. If I can find a host some where ahead of me along as it’s westward of where I am I’ll aim for the host. If anyone would host me or know someone who might please message me.
I’ll be starting next week in West Memphis Arkansas
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 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.
I’ll be traveling to Memphis TN from Jackson Tn. These are the possible routes if anyone know of a place or persons that would possible Host me please contact me.
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.
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.

Merry Christmas to all of you. Thank you for your Christmas wishes and prayers. May God bless each and every one of you.
This is my route for the next week. If you live along it or know someone who does and could host me for a night please contact me.
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.
Buck and Renegade
