Could your neighbor be starving?

Today I am reading a blog called Take Part - Inspiration to Action and it stated that 49 million people in the US lack access to nutritious food. 

I've been taken with our food challenges in many different ways recently (read previous posts on GMOs and other unsavory threats to our wellbeing) but this one just got me.  I could say the topic is so depressingly sobering that rolling up in a ball and moaning is a possibility.  I also highlight the name of the blog as it includes the phrase "inspiration to ACTION!"

The article offers additional information and links, but mostly I like the simple ending advise... 

"take action - find a food bank event near you"

Simple.  Sometimes it takes a simple shift to make big headway.

Click the link.  It is what any of us can do right now.

Grab a neighbor or tell a can be one of the ones who tip the scale.



  1. Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation
    William F. Engdahl

    This skillfully researched book focuses on how a small socio-political American elite seeks to establish its control over the very basis of human survival, the provision of our daily bread. Control the food and you control the people. This is no ordinary book about the perils of GMO. Engdahl takes the reader inside the corridors of power, into the backrooms of the science labs, behind closed

    doors in the corporate boardrooms. The author reveals a World of profit-driven political intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation and the patenting of life forms are used to gain worldwide control over food production. The book is an eye-opener, a must-read for all those committed to the causes of social justice and World peace.
