As I was growing up, my family was often blessed by food gifts from charity. I learned a lot from countless meals of plain beans and rice. I remember watching my mother cry over a gift of groceries. I learned to be grateful for every single thing in my life. Though I grew up without an abundance of material things, I was richly blessed and I never went to bed hungry.

There may never be anything more beautiful to me than a full pantry. The monotony of grocery shopping as an adult is countered by the overwhelming gratitude that I am able to go to the store and purchase what we need every week.

If you were hanging out with me here on the blog last year, you’ll remember that we participated in a food drive through Feeding America and together we raised almost $5,000 to help feed the hungry throughout the holiday season.

Once again, as the end of the year approaches, I would love to get as much food as possible into the homes of those who need it. Every dollar you give through our Virtual Food Drive helps provide TEN meals for people in need. We can work together to make a HUGE impact in many lives this holiday season.

I researched a great many charities before deciding to work with Feeding America. Feeding America spends 94.18% of their budget directly on food distribution endeavors. You can examine their ranking among other charities here. A gift of $25 will feed a family for three weeks. How many families could we feed if we work together to donate what we can? Please consider joining Barefeet In The Kitchen and helping feed the hungry this holiday season.

    Thanks so very much for supporting Feeding America. As someone that runs a food pantry I know how much we rely on them for assistance. And even with that we are always hurting for donations. I would like to encourage all your readers to PLEASE, if they can, go spend $20 on can goods and pasta or peanut butter and drop it off at their local facility. Together we can end the hunger crises so many are facing in today.

    What a great idea and a generous one at that. My husband, a pastor, and I see so many hungry during our work. Feeding America is a great resource, and they do tremendous work. God bless you, your family and your efforts for the least of these.

    What an awesome thing you are doing! I am in Canada, not the US, and I still need to make use of the food banks at times…there have been times where I had the choice of going there or going hungry for a few days… This should not be happening at all in North America!!! Corporate greed has done this…we are rich nations!

    Thanks for keeping hunger in the forefront! Our FoodBank is able to convert each single $ into $8 worth of services- return on investment that I'm very happy to support!
