A to Z Challenge – F

The letter F…

I had kind of a light breakfast this morning, but at least I had something.  In the past I have struggled, and the local food bank kept us from starving.  I can’t thank them enough.  I know this time is hard for many who are out of work.  I had a friend who, a few years ago, was not only out of work but homeless too.  I couldn’t fathom how bad it was wondering from day to night where your next meal would come from.  I helped him out as best as I could from about 4 states away.  He relied heavily on the homeless shelter for a while.  Not a bad deal, doing chores around the shelter in exchange for dinner and the occasional sandwich at lunch.  Now with so many out of work the food banks need to be as fully stocked as possible.  Food is such a precious commodity that everyone should be able to get.  Take a minute and think about that when you fix dinner tonight.  For that reason I am grateful to have food to eat.

  1. Of course. It is the most important thing we need after air and water. And most of us take it for granted. Thank you for reminding us.
