“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, ….”  Matthew 25:35   

Did You Ever Wonder How Bad Can Hunger Be?

The statistics show only the numbers. They don’t show the people – children, men and women – who are not getting enough to eat. They don’t show the child who goes to bed hungry and then goes to school the next morning on a still empty stomach. They don’t show the elderly person, who after a lifetime of hard work, has to choose between eating and medical care. They don’t show the struggle of the mother and father who are working hard trying to feed their family, but still don’t have a sufficient amount of money to provide enough food, so they skip meals so their children can eat or “water down” food. Until a person has experienced hunger firsthand it’s hard to understand what it’s like to be truly hungry.

​​When you see the statistics do you think hunger could only happen to someone else or that  hunger only happens to the homeless and those living in poverty?  Any one of us could be one job loss, medical or financial crisis away from being one of the hunger statistics!
