End Hunger Campaign
As someone who promotes local foods in our rural community, I was very interested in The Washington Journal show this morning that interviewed actor Jeff Bridges, who was promoting his charity, The End Hunger Network. I can't believe I've never heard of this program which has been around for nearly 30 years. It was so uplifting to hear about a non-partisan program that seeks only human welfare and not some political agenda. What I liked about this program is that it seeks to work with existing organizations so there is no duplication and waste of resources. The statistics on hunger in America are mind numbing. If you are interested in this topic, check out the Food Research and Action Center and the endhunger.com web sites. Way to Go, Jeff!
