Hunger means the deprivation of hope. Because hunger means empty cupboards and an empty fridge making a house no longer feel like home. Hunger means long silent nights will serve the family instead of the love filled laughter once shared nightly around the dinner table. Hunger means no ice cream and birthday cakes to celebrate life. Hunger means having no holiday meals to make memories or establish traditions. Hunger means no after school snacks for you kids to come home to. Hunger means being consumed by emptiness. Hunger means suffering. It gives you a taste of inadequacy while you feast on its nothingness. It eats away wanting for anything more. Hunger means starving for the chance to live. And although it’s uninvited, hunger is tolerated because we’re taught to keep our mouth closed when it’s our mouth that’s full of food. Never a just a table for one, hunger means we need to feed those in need, every time we dine out because it’s very possible hunger could happen to us.

Hunger affects families in untold ways. Consider the number of kids who go to bed hungry every night, or parents that have to choose between food or medicine It sickens us to think that this occurs right under our noses, right here in North Texas. It’s in our cities, in our neighborhoods. We have the power to change this, to help feed hungry children, the ability to make a difference, and I’m encouraging everyone to help.

"Hunger to me means that a person does not have their basic needs met.  My mother is an advocate for homeless people in Australia. She has received many awards for the work she does with the homeless community and feeding the homeless and hungry in my hometown of Australia. She has instilled in me the understanding that we are all equal and when one has an abundance of one thing it is our responsibility to share with those less fortunate.

I am motivated  to be a better person to the people around me because I look at life as a gift. Everything we do can have a positive or negative affect on every person we come into contact with. I believe it is important to have a positive affect on the world and on those in it. It is the little things we do on a daily basis that can make a huge impact in the long run.”

Hunger is definitely something that can be beat as long as we keep fighting.  I find the best way to fight hunger is get involved in your own community with the local food bank and volunteer your time. When I first got involved with the fight against hunger I thought all I could do was donate money which of course is still needed but without people volunteering our time the money has a hard time getting out and making a difference. Along the way I have found other avenues to fight such as passing out meals during the holiday season or delivering “Meals on Wheels” but it’s not only during the holiday season that hunger attacks our community so I make it a point to volunteer at least once a month at the food bank – it only takes 2 ½ hours of my time to deliver over 6 thousand meals which is well worth the time out of my day. As I said before we can beat hunger as long as we keep fighting and fight together as one.

"As a Realtor, I see the struggles that people deal with and many times I can’t help them due to unforeseen circumstances (health crisis, death, divorce, sudden job loss) that can cause huge financial troubles for these families and individuals. It’s extremely difficult having to turn down hundreds of adults and their children every year, which means there are hundreds of people living on the street with no means of a place to live or food. Since we can’t find these people homes, I at least wanted them to be fed. Hungry humans make bad decisions and those decisions affect everyone around them. If even one meal a day will help the hungry make better decisions, all people will benefit from it.”Chris O. - The Colony, TX
