Tonawanda News — Better yet, maybe I’ll teach them how to shop and cook, and they can feed the rest of us.
All this speculation and commentary on the eating habits of growing small children leads me to what inspired this column today.
I watch my boys eat and I watch my grocery bill climb and I struggle to feed them nutritious food that will also fill them up. We’re fortunate. Even if we have to cut something else out, we can do that.
Many families can’t. Times are tough. There are too many little boys (and girls) who go to bed with growling stomachs, just because there wasn’t quite enough at the dinner table that night.
If you’re able, remember that this holiday season.
You can find a list of food pantries, searchable by zipcode, at www.foodbankwny.org. Every little bit helps. You can also make a donation on the website.
And if you’re the one in need, you can find help there as well. Or you can call for information at 852-1305.
No child should be hungry.
And we should all try to do something about it.Jill Keppeler is a writer for the Tonawanda News. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
