Can We Fix Childhood Hunger?
Do I think childhood hunger is going to get better? I hope so, though I think it will get worse before it does. With utilities sky rocketing and gas prices growing faster than Jack’s beanstalk, families who were just getting by last year face the lack of food for their families. The children need your support….gather your friends and join us Monday, June 2nd at The Visionary Art Museum for Baltimore’s Taste of the Nation. I’ll be there; I’m the one with the camera.
