Last Day of Hunger Action Month!

Today is the last day of hunger action month but it's never too late to act. This month was intended to increase awareness and it has, but there is still so much more to do. We've included an article in this post on ways you can help. Remember, if everyone does "something" it will impact the lives of many, so take action, get involved, help feed some!

September is Hunger Action Month

One of the ways you can help is by Volunteering at a local foodbank, ours is the Community Foodbank of Eastern Oklahoma. This video is about a singer who volunteered at her local foodbank in Nashville.

Teachers Speak Out About Hunger in the Classroom

I thought this was an interesting video, I remember when I lived in Virginia and was part of a ministry that reached out to several impoverished neighborhoods. The thing I remember most was the Christmas (2 week) vacation, a time where people should be the happiest but it was a time of concern for us. 
Thank God for school lunch programs that provided a free meal to a lot of these kids and in a many of cases their only meal of the day, now lets look at Christmas break again. We would go over to the neighborhoods once a week, feed, cloth, and minister to the kids and their families inside the local school bldg, but during the holidays we did our best to load them up with food and supplies because the school bldg would be closed and we were it for them until  when we returned (in 2 weeks). 
Folks this is a real problem that needs real action, effective action, start your own hunger awareness program, food drive, donation collection, work with local organizations, volunteer with something! A simple way to get involved is to do all your internet shopping through our mall or download our shopping wizard. The rebates from the stores go to fight hunger in Oklahoma with no additional cost to you and you're making a difference.

Feed Oklahoma Now...that means today!

COATBRIDGE, SCOTLAND - JANUARY 22:  Staff at t...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
We are going to be doing a can/food drive during the month of October to help area churches with their food pantries, dates and more info coming soon.
 Someone said recently that "teaching a man to fish", if you're familiar with that saying, is the most effective way to teach someone to help themselves, and I agree with them to a point. Now, if  they don't have food or certain necessities first they why would they listen to anything you have to say, I mean really, feed first talk later.

If I was hungry and you assisted me in getting my immediate needs taken care of ,what you have to say to me will  have more effect and power and I'm able to more effectively listen to you. Word of mouth is the most effective means of spreading a message, if you're meeting the needs of people and delivering an effective message, they will start talking about you and continue to talk about you, hence your message is now almost on auto-pilot!

How about this, feed them , teach them to feed themselves, encourage and equip them to do the same for that's powerful!

Hunger Unacceptably High

Think Globally, act locally, then act globally. Our order of business: Tulsa/Broken Arrow, OK, The state of  Oklahoma, The USA, then the rest of the world. Some people might not agree with this, and they don't have to.  Don't get us wrong all of these areas will receive attention we believe we can have a bigger impact if we focus our efforts locally first.

There are just so many creative ways to help!

Chronic Hunger

Hunger in Oklahoma is unacceptably high  but it's not just here, it's a major problem in many states and countries worldwide. The article link below gives some insight to the depth of this problem, now we may not be able to save the world but we can definitely have an effect on this state and helping to feed our fellow Oklahomans.
