STOP! Ok, before continuing I want you to think about something. What did you have for dinner last night? Breakfast today? You probably ate something right? Well, I don’t think you realize how lucky you are.
Every day, you probably eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and some snacks. You just find something to eat on your plate, in your lunchbox, or in your bag and you probably think: Oh, cool. Food. I’m just going to eat it. Did it ever come to you that not everyone HAS food? I’m serious.
Everyday, there are people who don’t have food to eat. They either scavenge around trash cans for food or don’t eat at all. Not everyone can afford food. There are 815 million people that don’t eat or don’t have enough to eat. You’re probably thinking: Just go get Mc Donalds! It is so cheap there! But what if they don’t HAVE a Mc Donalds? What is the can’t AFFORD Mc Donalds?
Well, what can we do to help? You can donate canned food to different charities or organizations or give food to the homeless.
I want to tell you a story. You can watch it here. This video shows just how much one person can help others.
What do YOU think you can do to help people that can’t afford food?
