I substituted “Mt. Tabor resident” for “senior,” and stole the title from Meals on Wheels.
As you have probably guessed, food is something that’s on my mind a lot. Maybe more now because Thanksgiving is coming up.
Hunger has been on my mind a lot too…and that may also be due to Thanksgiving. I’m so grateful to have a full belly every day. My husband and I are on food stamps, and having a hot bowl of soup when I’m at work here at TaborSpace definitely helps fill in the gaps. As the article in the link below mentions, most Americans who receive food stamps get about $4 a day:
So what if we (myself included) made it a mission, and not just a vision, to make sure that no Mt. Tabor resident went hungry or experienced social isolation?
What would that look like?
I’ll leave you with a few ideas I had…please share yours!
- Tell someone you know is struggling about TaborSpace…about how they are welcome, wanted, and needed. Even if they can’t pay our suggested donation price for their meal.
- Pay a little extra for your cup of coffee or your meal to sponsor the cost for someone who can’t pay the full amount.
- Donate to our TaborSpace Holiday Food Drive. Donations have slowed down considerably, and we have a long way to go to make sure that everyone who asks discreetly gets a bag of groceries to take home. There’s a QFC right down the street…I’m walking there on my break to get a few non-perishable items to contribute.
