Bringing awareness to the URGENCY to feed those who need our support and the food banks that serve them with guest Pat Binette, aired 11-12-2013
There are too many hungry people in this world and it is shameful that in this day and age it is so. With an imbalance of abundance, banks, governments and corporations all leaving society poor due to their actions, we have more and more people needing the help of food banks.
Never assume that a person who is hungry is a looser or a lay-about, for today we have so many people in need who have lost their homes, jobs, health, that they need the support of their community to just eat.
Today we discuss the need for food support from one of our Angels Pat Binette at Pitt Meadows “Friends in need food bank”, that has for the last 13 years been feeding the people who have fallen on hard times. I know because I have been one, and without that bridge, I would have been dreadfully hungry.
Pat was asked to start this journey 13 years ago through her councilman and church. At that time she supplied 25 hampers a month to those in need, now 13 years later it is 175 hampers a month plus weekly food and this is a small community and that still is not enough. With over 200 hundred children to feed, seniors, people on disability and those who have lost their jobs and let us not forget the pets in need too, it is imperative that we lend a helping hand. Small or big, food left at your local store, buying a share coupon in support or directly donating to your local food bank, you can make a difference between someone eating or starving.
People think governments support these food banks, but in actual fact, it is Angels like Pat and her team of volunteers that make it happen, without them, many people would not have any food to eat.
Never assume or judge for you never know when you may need this kind of help, and never assume that it is not all walks of life that at some stage in their lives may need help to stand on their own 2 feet again. They have walked in many of the people shoes and know what it is like to know hunger and to feel alone.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, FIND A FOOD BANK AND GIVE IT YOUR SUPPORT, FEED A SOUL SO THAT SOUL MAY FIND THEIR PLACE IN THE WORLD AGAIN. REMEMBER PEOPLE NEED TO EAT DAILY NOT JUST ONCE A YEAR, SO GIVE YOUR SUPPORT ON A REGULAR BASIS NOT JUST ONCE A YEAR WE CAN PUT A STOP TO STARVATION.
