While shopping in Target this weekend I stumbled upon a display that was named “FEED.” The name stuck out to me for obvious reasons and I had to walk up and see what it was about. The display had clothing items, purses and jewelry. Each item has FEED somewhere located on it as well as a number. The number stands for how many meals will be donated to a hungry family in the United States when you purchase the item.
It reminded me how socially aware our country is becoming, wanting to help out and donate to people in need. After purchasing a few items myself, I started thinking how we can directly help families here in
our own county. Not to down play FEED, which I obviously think this is a fabulous program that I will support, but for those who may not want desire one of these items, you can still help.
Every time you eat at Gray Brothers Cafeteria, Bob Evans, Pizza Hut, Blueberry Hill, Little Caesars, Papa John’s, Ralph and Ava’s and Squealers, you’re purchasing a meal for a hungry family here in Morgan County. By supporting our amazing partners you are helping their business, which in turn helps our organization continue to receive food, bringing this all full circle.
Many times we believe we can’t help or that our one purchase will not make a difference, but FEED reminded me that it does. Even purchasing one meal is helping provide for a person in need. This reminds me that I CAN make a difference and that our organization itself can help stop hunger here in Morgan County. And with organizations such as FEED, one day hunger will no longer be a reality anywhere in the U.S.
