Hi, I’m Angela, And this is my mission and my dream: Riding for Childhood Hunger Awareness. If you are interested in what Renegade, Star-Buck, Schatzie and I are doing, please read on.
But what exactly are we doing, you’re no doubt wondering? I am traveling alone with my horses and wagon. 8000+ miles, from Liberty Kentucky to the East coast (Sunset Beach NC) 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.
I started in August of 2018 and approximately ending in August 2020.
My mission is to bring awareness by talking to the media online and news papers, and if all goes well to the Television networks, local and national. You all can help with this call your local or national news and tell them about my mission and give them my Facebook page.
I know some of you are wondering why. Why do this type of trip? Why the length? Well my desire to do this Trek was started when I was 11 and read about the Abernathy brothers. But even before that I was always looking and wondering what was over the next hill, beyond the next curve of the road. I was always exploring trails less traveled to find out where they went. I am a tractor trailer driver, a trucker. I’ve drove all 48 eight states and Canada. But all I’ve seen was the main roads, I’ve drove by national parks, through wilderness areas , by historical signs. Yet could never stop and actually see the places where history was made. I want to travel at a pace where I can take roads less traveled. Talk to people who I would never see if I was traveling at the modern pace in a car. I want to hear peoples stories of their lives and their ancestors. I want to inspire people to follow their dreams no matter how hard or crazy they seem. I want to bring awareness of Childhood Hunger in America and that one person can make a difference.
Thank you and hope to see you on the road.

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.

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.
