As you lie down to sleep at night, what comes in to your mind? Are you thinking about the electric bill payment, problems with your job, what you'll wear to work, if the children did their homework? What about food? Do you ever lie in bed in the dark and the quietness and wonder what you will eat tomorrow? Probably not -- but there are millions of Americans who do.
Imagine wondering where the next meal will come from. Imagine all the petty problems of the day compared to having an empty stomach, nothing in the cupboard and little prospects of anything changing tomorrow. Fortunately for a lot of us, food is a basic need that we don’t worry about being without. When we want something to eat, it’s easy to run out for a quick bite at a fast food drive-through, or pick up something from the grocery store or simply prepare something in our kitchens. Seldom do we think about if
we'll be eating the next meal, and more often we worry about what
we'll be eating instead.
