In 2010, 17,200,000 households, 14.5 percent of households, (approximately one in seven) were food insecure, the highest number ever recorded in the United States. My guess is that the number cold have only gotten higher, given the state of our country’s economy.
This morning I would like to say thank you to Richard and Lesley for all they are doing to help those here in South Florida, who might otherwise worry about where their next meal was coming from. Your commitment is amazing and no doubt greatly appreciated by the countless people that benefit and will continue to benefit from your incredible efforts. Thanks to everyone at The All Saints Soup kitchen for their dedication to the mission. Thanks to my family, friends and everyone at Tamarac Fitness Center for your contributions to my mini fund-raising effort. Tonight I will present YOUR donations at the maxi fund-raising event….where there WILL be vegan options! Gotta love that.
Here’s hoping that you and your loved ones never, ever have to wonder where your next meal is coming from.
