Incidentally, hunger isn't just a remote problem. I saw an OB patient yesterday who hadn't eaten in almost two days. The refrigerator is empty in the apartment where she is staying. Luckily, we had some sandwiches left over from a meeting that I was able to give her. Where will she get her next meal? How will she take care of a baby if she doesn't have enough money to feed herself? According to the USDA, one in eight Americans is at risk for hunger. Our local food bank encourages the following donations:
Macaroni & Cheese
Canned Fruits and Vegetables
Fruit Juices/Sip-sized Juices
Even if you are on a tight budget, you can donate a can of vegetables and help a hungry family for less than $1.00!!
