|Food Trucks Can Fight Hunger|
Remember those summer afternoons when you would hear the tinkling of ice cream truck music and you would rush to grab your money and run out to get a tasty treat? These days, people are getting all sorts of food from food trucks, that are popping up to sell everything from tacos to fresh, organic meals on street corners around the country.
However, there are 22 million kids in this country that can’t afford to eat -- at a food truck or elsewhere -- and who are in danger of going hungry this summer.
In New Haven, Connecticut, Tim Cipriano, executive director of school food services for the city, is using food trucks to bring meals to hungry kids. In the process he's working to increase access to food and reduce the stigma associated with receiving free meals.
For today's Daily Action, learn more about the innovative way food trucks can help connect hungry kids with healthy, delicious food.
Some would say that this is sad, but I say--not really! After all, what we need to remember is that when Barack Obama was elected the motto was--'Yes, we can!' --NOT--Yes, I can. If Mitt Romney wants to make believe that he is superman who can solve all the problems--solo-that is his problem, which hopefully and prayerfully does not become America's.
Then again, it could be me. After all, sometimes it feels like this Independent is the only one who remembers former President George H.W. Bush's a thousand points of light and how much it is still true under President Obama too.
Or how patriotic it is to agree with the American leaders who are doing the right thing as it is to fight against the American leaders who are doing the wrong thing.
Let us not forget that the problem of hunger is being solved--solving problems is good. It is the sweeping under the rug that is bad.
