Thanksgiving is a tradition associated with a feast of food. The traditional Thanksgiving menu often features turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. There is more than enough food for all.
Or is there?
More than 36 million Americans are facing hunger, yet nearly 96 billion pounds of food are wasted every year. So perhaps there is enough food for all, but not everyone is getting enough food.
This past year in Los Alamos County the number of families receiving food distributions provided by LA Cares has increased more than 20 percent with more than 100 families now receiving monthly food boxes. The Food Depot in Santa Fe provides help to 80,000 people each quarter.
Enough for all requires all of us doing enough.
The theme of this year’s CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk/Turkey Trot is “Enough For All.” It’s an opportunity to participate in a 2.57 mile fun walk/run while raising money to help address poverty and hunger on local and global levels. There is no cost, but donations of money and non-perishable food items are greatly appreciated. Twenty five percent of the donations go to LA Cares to address local hunger relief efforts, while 75 percent of the donations address global hunger relief efforts.
