Our mission is to raise awareness of how many children and elderly going hungry in America today and how to help. America the land of plenty has 16 million hungry children. So we decided to do something to help by what? So we tried to figure out what we could do to help. We decided that raising awareness of the hopeless hunger in our most at risk Americans would help.
Food insecurity is harmful to all people, but it is particularly devastating to children. Proper nutrition is critical to a child’s development. Not having enough of the right kinds of food can have serious implications for a child’s physical and mental health, academic achievement and future economic prosperity.
In the United States today, nearly 16 million children face hunger. Consequently, one in five kids are facing greater obstacles to reaching their fullest potential. The future of America lies in our children. When hunger threatens the future of a child, it threatens the future of our nation as well.
We will be stopping along the way to talk to people about the at risk people going hungry on American soil. We will be talking about ways to help American children and elderly.
1. What can local people of the community do to help.
A. Every time you go to the store to buy groceries buy a little extra and give it to someone in your neighborhood who needs it.
B. Find out what children are going hungry in your neighborhood. I’ll bet that most of your children know who doesn’t get to eat. Send a extra lunch to school with your child if he or she knows of a child going hungry. That lunch might let a child go to bed without being hungry.
C. If you know of someone elderly on a fixed income fix up a box of food and drop it off. A jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread will help. Or a couple cans of soup.
2. Why should you help.
A. The child you help feed today might be the one to save your child’s life tomorrow.
B. The children are your neighbors, what will you be teaching your children if you don’t help.
3. Don’t look the other way and expect someone else to help. Set an example to your family and your neighbors. It doesn’t cost much to help a little and if everyone helps a little maybe Children and Elderly going hungry in America will stop.
It’s not the government’s job to help, it’s ours the people who live beside our at risk neighbors. Please don’t ignore the problem and say it’s not my problem. Because it is our problem.
When you feed others you are feeding Christ.
1. Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, my Father has blessed you! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat.I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. I needed clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you took care of me.
