I am so thankful to live in America and be free to access food, plentiful and readily available, at a reasonable price.
I am so thankful to live in America and be free to love, enjoy peace, appreciate security, plan for future, all while spending time with friends and family.
For all the food that we will enjoy today, I cannot help but think of those that will go hungry sometime during the year. Food security is becoming recognized as one of major human rights that is yet to be fully addressed on a global scale. To that end, I'd like to draw your attention in this day of feasting to a UN effort to address this matter. Like any program on a national or international scale it is NOT perfect. nevertheless, the goals are admirable. World Food Day was celebrated on October 16, 2017. Please see the website related to its events.
Also, there is a major publication about "Zero Hunger" that you'd want to see. I have attached the cover page.
