The amount of food consumed over the holiday weekend is somewhat embarrassing. I have to edit photos and then will post away. You’ll see.
It started with a post about Tom Colicchio’s Testimony Before Congress where he expresses his support for the Improving Nutrition for America’s Children Act. From there I clicked to Hungry in America, a documentary film that examines why so many people in our country go without food.
That lead me to the FEED Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds to ensure nutritious school meals for all children as a first step to improving the global food system (quoted from the Mission page).
In partnership with the FEED Foundation is FEED Projects. Together they work to provide school meals to children through the United Nations World Food Program. The goal of FEED Projects is sell as many FEED bags as possible, and in turn the proceeds go to feed and educate hungry children.
I am pining after one of these FEED bags, or to be more accurate, three of them. Their products directly speak to my soul being eco-friendly, globally responsible, stylish and fair-trade, with the profits going to feed hungry kids. (My friend over at Indie Mom would be proud.)
