In honor of Hunger Action Month, this month’s donation is going towards food. Even when I’m broke, I never worry where I will get my next meal. It may be $1 pizza or pasta made at home, but I’ve never worried about being hungry. Sadly, that’s not the case for many people. In 2011, 50.1 million Americans lived in food insecure households—that’s 33.5 million adults and 16.7 million children. And it’s only getting worse. Feeding America provides food to more than 37 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters in communities across America. To know what it’s like, you can try and survive off $4.50 a day, the daily food budget for millions of Americans. Living in New York, that small amount is mind-blowing. That’s the equivalent of one trip to Starbucks. What can you do to help?

I’ve been busy catching up with past projects and crossing more items off my 101 Things list :

12. Got to the Top of the Rock

21. Throw a party
