As a Hunger Advocate and supporter of Feeding America, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about why hunger is such an important cause to me personally. Fortunately, I have never been hungry…not truly hunger with no options for food. But hunger is what made me decide to go into horticulture. After a B.A. and a M.S. in Biology, both focused on botany, I felt a need to do something more, something bigger. i wanted to FEED PEOPLE! So I decided to change my course and study horticulture. Please consider contributing with your time, money, and resources to fight hunger!
September is Hunger Action Month. All month long, Feeding America is helping people raise awareness of hunger in America. In this land of plenty, 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger. Today, I’m dedicating my status to help Speak Out Against Hunger™.
