World Hunger Relief Week

This week, Oct 14th to the 20th, is World Hunger Relief Week. This movement is dedicated to raising the awareness of world hunger and taking donations to feed the poor all over the world. Here’s a link to the website sponsoring this event:

If you are interested in this problem, I also suggest that you search the web for similar sites and donate to the one of your choice. I, for one, am interested in the increasing problem of hunger in the United States. I found a report published by the Carsey Institute of the University of New Hampshire. It offers a summary on the poverty rate in the U.S. and how it has changed since 2000, and then it includes a table of statistics for each state. You can read the report here.

I’m from Alabama, and I’ve seen some of the dammage from the hurricanes of the past few years. I personally would encourage people to donate to these areas. The Bay Area Food Bank is doing work for people Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. Here’s a link to their site:
