The facts are sobering. Over 36 million Americans will go hungry this Thanksgiving. Of these, at least 12 million are children. At least one in five people in a soup kitchen line is a child. Scientific evidence suggests that hungry children are less likely to become productive citizens.

Did you know that hunger affects:

  1. How we perform at work.
  2. How our children perform in school.
  3. How we view our communities and our lives.

The irony is that more than enough food is wasted each year to feed all of the nation’s hungry.

But don’t tell that to the non-profit soup kitchens and charities, which have served a record number of meals this year. The current state of the economy has only pushed more people through their doors and this Thanksgiving holiday is likely to set new attendance records. Although generous benefactors have donated food and supplies, volunteers are still needed to accommodate the growing lines outside the soup kitchens.

So what are you doing this Thanksgiving?

If you are interested in volunteering your time and/or donating funds, here is a list of soup kitchens and food banks. Please contact your local non-profit organization to inquire about how you can make a difference. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
