From Hanna at Inherit the Spoon: I wasn’t ever hungry as a child

A note from Daisy:

As many of you know, I am a big fan of Hannah’s blog, Inherit the Spoon.

When she recently published this post on poverty and food insecurity, I thought it was so poignant, personal, and well-done that I asked her if I could share it with you.

Thank you, Hannah for bringing my attention back to an issue that I have long been aware of, but haven’t devoted enough time and energy to.

Inherit the Spoon

Daniel and Hannah
No person should go hungry, period. When it is a child, it is even more heartbreaking. Here in the U.S., 50 million people don’t have enough to eat. 16 million of them are children: that’s 1 in 4 kids who don’t know where their next meal will come from. I’m honored to donate this post as part of Food Bloggers Against Hunger; my hope with today’s action is that we will raise awareness about food insecurity and hunger in the United States, while sharing some ideas about what you can do to help.

    • Really it’s thanks to Hannah! Her post really does put it in perspective, doesn’t it? I think about all these budget cuts that eat into school lunch programs and other assistance models. I just feel like the rhetoric has lost sight of what is important and the politics are misguided as a result.

  1. I agree with this post, no one should ever go hungry. Especially not with all the resources every country has. Thanks for reblogging this

    • Absolutely! Hannah’s words resonated so much with me that I wanted to share them with others. Thanks for the comment, Kay. No one should have to go hungry.

  2. Daisy I’m honored you wanted to share this with your readers. Hopefully even more people will take action to make their voices heard on hunger. Thank you!

  3. It is terrible that in our advanced world we can still have hunger when we have an abundance of food. I was not ever hungry as a child and it hurts and shames me to think of all the meals I turned my nose up at.

    I count my lucky starts that I face overeating more than hunger.
