World Hunger

I happen to agree with Fisherswife. There are thousands of elderly and poor Americans that have to choose between a healthy diet and prescription drugs. The diet in the elderly and poor is probably the most important factor in extending their lives. Although commendable, the students would have been better served by helping local organizations to distribute food. I'm sure the elderly and poor would have loved the idea, and company the students would have provided. Many of the elderly are shut ins. Across America, colleges and schools could have made a tremendous impact in thousands of lives. Lives that have made America great. Lives that have sacrificed much to make other lives better. To the Administrators and Professors, please think of the elderly, poor, and children here first. They have paid the taxes, built the infrastructure, and built the foundations of the Schools, Colleges, and Community Colleges of America. Let's end hunger in our children and elderly and poor first. Then we can make a difference elsewhere. There are many right here in America that are dying from poor nutrition, or lack of food. Yes it is a world problem. It does need to be addressed by ALL countries. However, there are many many here at home that need it. I would venture to say there are much more than 25,000 that need food and nutrition here at home. The shipping cost's alone could have provided hundreds of meals to the needy, elderly, and children here in our area.
