This past weekend, I went home.
And by home, I don’t mean St. Louis. Right…. St. Louis is where I LIVE, but it isn’t where I’m FROM.
I’m from Los Angeles. And LA will ALWAYS feel like home to me. Even when I’m not playing with friends and visiting the beach.
Even when the reason I’m visiting is because of a need in the city, so intense, it makes my heart hurt.
More than 700 thousand kids in the LA area are hungry. Some don’t know where they will find their next meal. SOme live, day-in and day-out with that aching in their belly, the headache that starts when you just don’t have enough to eat.
I’m just one person. But me + a whole lot of fantastic people…. like Mark Saling from Glee (yes! PUCK!) and the amazing team behind the Con Agra Foods Foundation and Feeding America are parterning to End Childhood Hunger. This is my third time joining this effort…. and this time? We’re getting the schools on board through Schools Fight Hunger.
If you would like to register your school with Schools Fight Hunger, it is easy – visit their website or head to ChildHungerEndsHere. A school food drive or collecting UPC labels from participating Con Agra Foods seems like such a small thing, but it can make such a big difference.
Let me know if you register your school!
