Fighting Hunger in America

Fighting hunger in America has been an ongoing battle for many years.  According to Wikipedia, in 2011 16.7 million children in the United States were living food-insecure households.  This means that their parents were having a tough time affording to buy enough food to feed their family.  When children don’t get enough nutrition it can lead to more severe physical and psychological health problems.

Food pantries and other charity organizations around the U.S are working hard to help feed hungry children and families in need (learn more information at http://www.labyrinthinc.com/charity-state-registration/does-my-charity-need-to-file-state-registrations/).  There is still much, much more that can be done to help fight hunger.  My children and I have volunteered at our local food pantry.  We also donate to the food pantry when our church holds a food drive.  Volunteering and donating are wonderful ways individuals and families can help feed the hungry in their local community.  We can also support companies that help local food pantries and work hard at fighting hunger.

Eat Feed Love Taste Club

Eat Feed Love is an online pantry that specializes in Artisan and Gourmet products. For each item sold they feed someone in need. Fighting hunger is their top priority.

How Their Taste Club Works

When you sign up for a taste club box  you’ll receive a delicious box of goodies delivered to your doorstep every month. Each box is packed full of hand-selected artisan products from all over the world, assembled by the Eat Feed Love kitchen team.

Each month, they select their favorite flavors to share with you. Your delivery will include a variety of spreads, condiments, jams, honey, syrups, cooking sauces, oils, vinegar, salts, spices, seasonings, chocolate and cocktail mixers.

Fighting Hunger with Eat Feed Love

Not only is every box filled with delicious goodies, it’s also a great way to give back! Every month, Eat Feed Love teams up with a different organization or charity that they feel is doing important work. Then they share the proceeds with that organization or charity. We all need a little extra love sometimes, and this is a great way to help.

Some of the excellent organizations Eat Feed Love has partnered with include World Vision, Feed the Children, Canadian Food Grains Bank, Mercy Ships International, and Mustard Seed Outreach. They have chosen to work with charities who get aid directly to where it’s needed, with minimal overhead. Canadian Food Grains Bank contributions are matched by the Canadian government to make the donations even more effective. By partnering with great organizations they help to continue their efforts here at home and around the world. As a customer of Eat Feed Love you will also partner with those organizations that are fighting hunger! We’re all making a positive impact together.

    I am so beyond appreciative of the food that is on my plate and in my fridge! I never for a second take my ability to obtain food on the regular for granted!

    Eat Feed, sounds like a great Giveback product!
    So many people go hungry, and I always get baffled when so many are so concerned about other issues around the world, and sending their money here and there for every other cause. When we really need to take care of our own, and make sure no American child goes hungry. I think if we did and were able to solve this problem in America it would open us up to help others in even greater ways.
    I am an animal lover, but I see no reason to send money to feed the whales when a child who is helpless is starving! Great post!

    I think it is great you encourage your kids to help others and set a good example for them! I volunteered as a child as well, and feel like it definitely helped me develop empathy, love, and patience. Thanks for sharing your link at the Family Joy Linky Party! Hope to see you again next week! 🙂

    I have never heard of this before, but I think it is a great idea! There are way too many kids that go hungry in this country. Thanks for sharing with #SocialButterflySunday! Hope to see you link up again this week 🙂
