Because I love to eat (and you can tell that if you looked at me) I want to talk to you about food. So if you will allow me, I will start at the beginning.
I'm not sure exactly how I came to think like I do now about food and food insecurities. In my adult life and spending a few years as a single mother of three we definitely had times that there was little food to choose from and no money to obtain any.
I thank GOD for other people who had somehow understood that we might need items and at times shared things with us saying they had more than they could use, because their generosity sustained us.
But, even while having a good understanding of what its like to be without food, I still somehow just relied on getting food at the store when we had the money to do so. Somehow I never thought to put some things away for those times when money was low or there was none at all.
Let's talk about that today.
