The United Nations has done some pretty amazing stuff for the world. They are always there in a pinch, making sure disaster zones get supplies they need, specifically food. Well, in 1979 this day was founded so as to raise awareness of poverty and hunger around the world. In 2010, the theme is United Against Hunger. What can you do today to help?

Disaster zones aren’t only in war torn countries miles away from our homes.  Consider helping out at a local organization like the Poverello House, a food bank, or attend a charity that collects canned food as an entry fee.  Every little bit helps and their are many ways to participate in the changes needed to help end World and Local Hunger.
