I had the pleasure of cutting potatoes in the kitchen at St. John’s Bread and Life. While I was there I saw how many ordinary people were just extremely hungry. It could have been you or me who was there. It amazed me how many people came in and out throughout the small amount of time I was there. If this is just one small amount of the many food pantry’s in New York, it just goes to show how many people are hungry in New York. To me, it is completely wrong that so many people need assistance in getting a warm meal. It should be a basic human right, no one should be hungry. And yet, it is a drastic issue, which needs to be addressed. I’m really glad I got to see this in person, because seeing how many people are affected by this issue really puts it into perspective, rather than a graph, statistics or a lecture.
