Why would fighting hunger matter to those who have enough or more than enough food each day?
It’s simple; hungry people cannot work and learn as well as people who have food in their systems and that is exactly why people who have enough food should help fight this hunger battle.
Since I was born my parents have always had enough food on the table to make sure I am fully energized and able to function each day. I am truly blessed to be able to get food without a trouble. I cannot imagine life without my easy access to food. This is when I begin to think about all those people in the world who do not have food, who are trying to fight their hunger each and every day.
I was recently speaking with my friend about how her experience to Asia this summer really changed the way she viewed food and the problem of hunger. She told me that as she visited various countries she noticed how they all had something in common, and that was how respectful they were of their food. Also noticing that in most villages there was no such thing as wasting food because they would make sure to finish each bit or save it for the next day.
It made her realize how much food is actually worth, not in the money sense, but the living sense. She said seeing so many skinny children in one place (due to their hunger) made her want to do something. She wanted to come back to see the children grow. Since she was working back in the States she decided that she would send a portion of her earning to the various countries she went to that were fighting hunger and also other places in the same situation.
My friend believes that if more people learn about the hunger fight, they might also try to do something about it. I strongly agree and that is why more people need to know more about this battle.
No one can fight hunger all alone, which is why we need your help! We can win this battle!
