Intrigued, Inspired and Involved
By Alexcia Jellum
The world’s population is constantly being bombarded with all types of adversity. Nourishment is a fundamental need of humanity, and something that we are all familiar with. Hunger affects the entire world, from tiny, tucked away towns to large cities. There are countless organizations and individuals that have made hunger their personal mission. The issue of hunger is one with many layers and intricacies. Our movement, Revolution Hunger, is giving teens the chance to further diversify the hunger fighting front.
What first struck me about Revolution Hunger’s message was that it recognized that everyone could make a difference. We each have specific talents and passions that we can use to fight hunger. Why not infuse what you’re passionate about with a message? I believe that if you can give the teen population unique ways to get involved they will take that opportunity an run with it. I am excited to get teens Intrigued, Inspired and Involved.
I think of the hunger relief programs in the Twin Cities as a web of food shelves, dedicated individuals, and volunteers. These powerful forces help thousands in my area. The world is plagued with pockets of extreme hunger and each one of us do something to help. I know many creative teens that are eager to find a productive channel for their work. My goal is to get teens in a position to use their talents to fight for this cause. Join me at Revolution Hunger!
