The Creative Princess: Do you KNOW hunger?

Do you KNOW hunger?

A few weeks ago I told you about the #TysonBreakfast Bread Bowls.

This week I took a few of the bowls to church with me.  I teach a class on Wednesday nights to 1st and 2nd grade girls.  We always have a lot of fun.  The church provides snacks for each class but my girls ALWAYS seem to still be hungry even after the snack.

My Mads enjoying her bowl!

A few weeks ago after a few girls ate 2 oranges, 3 apples and a package of cookies EACH I asked them about food.  I asked who ate before church, just a few girls raised their hands.  I asked who was going to eat dinner after church, a few more girls raised their hands.  Then, I asked if anyone would not be eating dinner tonight.  I had one girl raise her hand and my heart sank to my stomach.

Miss K LOVED the bowls, she ate 3 of them!

I love each and every one of these girls as if they were my own, well one IS my own but still.  It breaks my heart to hear some of the stories they share with me each week.  I do my best to help them without singling them out or making them feel bad.  I would give these girls the world, if I could.

Hunger is a mostly silent epidemic.  You would never know by just looking at some of the girls in my class that the only meals they eat are at school.  There are tons of ways you can get involved in helping your community!  Donate items to your local food bank, talk to your kids teachers and make a box for them to keep in their classrooms containing food for the kids that need a little extra, donate to your church.  Did you know Tyson has a hunger relief campaign going on called KNOW Hunger?  They do and I LOVE them for that!  You will find lots of info on how you can join in and support this mission.  I encourage all of you to help however you can in your communities.

We had such a fun night this week!  We did our lesson, had lots of snacks, did a craft then played outside.  I had a FULL class this week!  I need to find another table before next week, the girls were a little cramped together.
