First, I want to let you know I was selected for a Facilitator position for Shopping Matter. Yeah!!! No the job doesn't pay, but I have so much passion to share about shopping on a REAL budget and providing healthy meals. My first clients will be the parents of the College Track/Summit 54 program I work with. I mean think about it. We prep kids for college while they may be eating poor quality food. What's the use? Education for the children and the parents go hand in hand. It is now a win win working to end childhood hunger in the US by 2015. That is Share Our Strength's goal and we will need a lot more foot soldiers to make it happen. Get involved. Go to http://www.strength.org/about/ and see how you can share your strength.
Although they have been around, Share Our Strength is new to me. I found them round about from an article in the Denver Post titled :Should food stamps be used for fast food? Really? Yep. That is what it said. Enough about that . That article touched on a program called Cooking Matters. which teaches low income adults to cook healthy on limited funds. YEAH!!!!!!! While at the website looking at that program I discovered Shopping Matters. Better still. Learn how to shop for healthy food to prepare in a healthy manner. LOVE IT!.
This is what I am about. Taking you from where you are to where you want to be so you can be, do and have everything you need to have the life you want for yourself and love ones. Then, if not while, you pass it on!. Remember, you have to pass it on.
So, I sent them a request to get involved and we will see what they say. Fingers crosses. In the meantime, check them out.
