  1. Hi Diane!
    Thanks for stopping by Marvelous Mondays and sharing this info. I'll spread the word! :)


    1. The more bloggers involved the more powerful the message. Thanks.

  2. This is a great idea! I will try to post & link up. Thank you for sharing this at Marvelous Mondays. :)

  3. Diane, what a great idea. I am going to read more about it now. I appreciate your sharing this with me.

    I have often thought that I needed to use my blog to help others. This is one way to do it!

  4. Diane, I have just come from spending at least an hour reading the information from the Food Bloggers against hunger. I want to say again, thank you for sharing this. I am going to participate by blogging about this and my personal story also. I was in an abusive relationship and when I left, I found it difficult to raise my 2 year old on a secretaries salary. I quit work and went to school to better myself. During this time I used food stamps and other public aid. I know the struggle to eat healthy food. I have been in tears about this. My partner is a government worker and we will be effected by the sequester, but not in the way many others will be. We will still be able to put food on the table every day of the week. I am going to share this with others and hope that they will blog about this also. I will be facebooking, tweeting and doing what I can. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

    1. I am so glad I got this info to you Cynthia. It is wonderful that you are going to share your story. The more faces put on hunger the harder it will be for people to ignore it.

  5. What a great initiative Diane. The same could be said for a lot of people in Australia. I'll help spread the word and will hopefully post something on the day.
