We have many reasons to be grateful to our Creator on Thanksgiving. I urge local citizens to make donations to a local food shelf or make other charitable contributions if they are able. Our food shelves still are still feeling the extra strain from of the recession and this demand typically increases this time of year.
Minnesota fares a bit better than the national average, but a Hunger Solutions report indicates 10 percent of our households struggle to put food on the table. More than 4 percent eat less or skip meals altogether because they have low food security. Click here http://www.hungersolutions.org/ for more information on this topic.
Here are links to local county food shelves:
Please be safe if you travel this Thanksgiving and have a blessed holiday with friends and family.
