Help Reduce Hunger

 Did you know?????

 Hunger is a feeling experienced when the glycogen level of the liver falls below a threshold,[citation needed] usually followed by a desire to eat. The usually unpleasant feeling originates in the hypothalamus and is released through receptors in the liver. Although an average nourished human can survive weeks without food intake,[1] the sensation of hunger typically begins after a couple of hours without eating and is generally considered quite uncomfortable.

 

What can we do????

 

 There are two key ways in which you and other people in the United States can help reduce hunger and poverty: understanding-- this implies learning-- and action. Action can take three key forms: influencing public policy, contributing financially, and working directly with poor people.

Millions of families around the world have received farm animals from Heifer International-animals that help them feed their families and become self-reliant. How does this work? What do the families get from these animals? Livestock can improve people's diets (and lives!) in lots of ways! Many of the words that describe these benefits, start with the letter "M"!
