No More Hungry Nights: Ending hungry nights one house at a time.
Want to help us spread the word?
- No More Hungry Nights was created to raise food donations for people who are food insecure.
- We connect with leaders in the community with requests for families that truly need this support.
- The Hunger Strike is designed to raise awareness about food insecurity in our own cities where we might least expect it.
- The Hunger Strike was also designed to put hunger into perspective. It has happened or can happen to me or you.
- Together we can help people receive temporary donations, job leads, job training and education to end hunger.
- Something as simple as sharing on social media can make a huge difference.
Who I am, and who “we” are.
I am a mother that has been very near food insecurity and seen difficult financial times. I am a writer, food enthusiast, coffee lover, co-founder of Unique Home Options and No More Hungry Nights. My food blog has connected me with life changing friends and
learning experiences that make me who I am today. Read more…
have the help of my other half and my kiddos whenever I take on a big project like No More Hungry Nights and this Hunger Strike. Teachers, para-educators, friends and food bloggers have supported this project and without all of these people, this project would be non-existent. This is the “we” behind No More Hungry Nights.
Instead of crying in despair knowing that the problem is too big for me alone, I cried to my friends to help me make an even bigger difference than I could make alone. Scroll down to see more details about what we do.
#HUNGERSTRIKE Sept. 9-13, 2013
For five days I will only eat what is on the breakfast and lunch school menu. (You are not expected to go on a Hunger Strike but I’d love it if you would cheer me on!) This is what students receive if they are eligible to receive free meals. You can follow along here or on the Facebook events page and cheer me on! You do not need to actually go on strike as I am, but I appreciate your support! It’s not as easy as it sounds.
For a large number of kids, this is their food for the week. They may receive a small amount of food from the school to take home, but it is not enough to keep them from feeling hungry. Read more…
In some U. S. cities and in other countries there are no free meals for families with little or no food at home. These kids rely on food donations or local food pantries for what they eat.
Unfortunately, there is not a lot of media time dedicated to showing you what is really happening with food insecure families and I can only assume that is because it is seen as a small percentage and therefore not a priority.
If you or someone you know has experienced this personally, you know that this is a priority and this can be fixed.
