Food Feeds More Than Fools

Posted on April 1, 2011 | By Patty Pino | No Comments

Did you enjoy a nourishing breakfast today?  In the last week or so, did you share a delicious meal with family or friends?  If you’re in the US, maybe you were fortunate enough to have watched the finale of Top Chef and you considered replicating some of their dishes?
No matter what your approach to eating, please know that there are people in your neighborhood who, for a variety of reasons, may not have access to food today.

I DID say your neighborhood.

Today is April Food Day and bloggers all over the world are bringing awareness to the needs of the hungry. I serve on the board of a charity called FISH of Greater New Haven.  Our volunteers deliver bags of groceries to people in need. People who are homebound and can’t make it to a food source, people who have economic stress and can’t afford to purchase food for their families, people in crisis – we don’t ask questions, we just get them food.

What can you do to help?

From Connecticut or close by? Join me on Sunday, May 1 for the Walk Against Hunger. It should be a beautiful walk through the East Rock Park area of New Haven.  Click here to view my fundraising page, join the team, and learn more about the walk.

Thank you for considering others.
