What do you do when a child is hungry? This isn’t a trick question. I heard this story last week and wanted to share it with you.
There’s a middle school not far from here where there are quite a few students whose families are homeless. A cafeteria worker (in that school) noticed that some of the children were taking home packets of ketchup. She asked one of the students about it and this is what the student told her.
“I bring the ketchup home; open the packets, add water, and have ‘ketchup soup.’” At the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN), we see hungry children every day. And we feed hungry children every day—because that’s what you do when a child is hungry.
Help us feed these children by making a donation—in whatever amount you can afford. Every $25 we receive provides meals for 10 children. Donations may be mailed to: Dave Golbert, 7 Lee Court West, Great Neck, NY 11024. Please make your check payable to: the Interfaith Nutrition Network.
Each of us can make a difference. Each of us must try. “If not now, when?”
