Summer Hunger - Please Read

Please Please read this post... Share it with people you know - because you most likely will not know if someone is struggling.

I put a lot of information out there into the world - my chatter and recipes and for the most part, I hope you read it, but I understand if you don't.  This however is Different!

Hunger is something we don't share because we are embarrassed or ashamed. You might not know if someone close to you needs help, but passing along this information could make all the difference in the world.

Here is the Summer Food Program start page. If you go here, you can find a Summer Meal site close to you.  This is a nationwide program so please share it so that children can be reached and fed. So that summer can be the fun time we all think of it as being.

If you having trouble with the first site (I did) Try This One. It is the same program, just another way to search for you local sites. I have always been able to get it to work.

If you need more information about getting access to food in your area - you can simply call 2-1-1
Here is the 2-1-1 website specific to food. It is private and all the information you share is confidential. You will be able to talk to someone who is knowledgeable about programs and services in your area. Please don't suffer - there is help! So much HELP!

If you live in Utah - a good place to start is Utahns Against Hunger. They have so much help to give and information to provide - and they are passionate about this. If you are overwhelmed and don't know where to start or what kind of help might be available, they can help you and get you where you need to go. They are amazing advocates.

If you feel like this is something that you might be passionate about too. Consider joining or supporting programs in your area.
