While we are the richest country in the world, the sad fact is that many families in our communities are going hungry. Some go to bed hungry and others don’t know where their next meal will be coming from. It’s a real crisis.
After watching, Hunger Hits Home, my 7 year old said, “Mommy, it’s so sad. It’s not okay that people don’t have food. How can we change this?”.
It’s not just a stranger’s reality, this is a common issue that can happen to any one of us. Hunger hits our neighbors, our friends and our family. Most hardworking Americans that do have jobs still struggle to feed their family.
When you think of February, you probably think of Valentine’s Day or possibly Leap Year, but did you know that it is also National Cherry Month? Dedicating an entire month to a single fruit may seem strange, but cherries are no ordinary fruit. They’re full of antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, but also have a number of uses beyond food. If you love cherries like I do, it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate one of our country’s favorite — and most versatile — fruits, and we’ve got a bunch of ways to help you do just that!

Black Friday shopping is wild, crazy, and a whole lot of fun–until you find yourself with an empty gas tank, an empty wallet, and a car full of things you wanted but don’t really need. Use these strategies to make sure you get what you really need and maybe even save the planet, just a little, while you’re at it.
