Hunger Is Scary

Hunger is Scary Twitter Party

Recently I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful woman, Sharon, for a cause that is important to her.  Every Halloween she raises awareness to help support local food shelters with a Student Group Competition.  She asked for my help in getting the word out via social media.  I love her message, “hunger is scary”.  I immediately loved what she was doing and told my kids.  When we go trick or treating this year, we are going to bring our wagon with us and collect food for our local food pantry.  We will also hand out fliers with a link where those who are interested can donate funds to an organization.

After Halloween passes, people focus on the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I want those holidays to be significant in many ways this year.  They will be bittersweet and will have a lot of emotions attached to them in our community of North Branford this year.  But I’d like to do something uplifting and good for our town.  I want to continue the spirit of community and caring for your neighbors by keeping the awareness prominent that others we may even go to class with don’t have much.

In the spirit of one of Lyla’s wishes when she left the hospital last year, I’d like to full up our food pantry boxes to overflowing.  People come and go with busy lives and may share their lives on Facebook and social media and things may look well and happy; but images say one thing.  What someone is really going through may not be displayed.  I’d like us to open our eyes to others and not just pass them by as we come and go from our kids’ activities; but let’s “be a community” and talk to one another.  Let them know you care.

What Is Hunger is Scary?

Sharon’s organization’s goal is to engage local teenagers in their communities by providing them a way to volunteer on Halloween.  Individuals can rally a community around a common cause of fighting hunger by organizing a street, neighborhood, or an entire town to participate in giving.

To help raise awareness to Sharon’s program, I invite you to follow them on their social media channels:

I actually haven’t heard about Hunger is Scary but was so glad you are hosting a party to bring more awareness to this cause. Even though we have food drives at work several times a year, it doesn’t really make us think about how scary being hungry is until it happens to us.

I have not hear do Hunger Is Scary before but it makes a lot of sense to support. Personally I like having my kids in the act of giving tangible items to the food pantry (just a few) while giving money directly to the food pantry myself because it is more effective giving. Giving money allows the food pantry to buy what they need in bulk low prices, so I think it’s great to have the flyers with links for giving!

I had not heard of Hunger Is Scary until I read this article today. I want to help by first of all learning more about, and also by sharing information about this wonderful organization on my social media outlets to help spread the word. I look forward to tonight’s Twitter Party, and I’ll be sure to encourage my friends and followers to attend as well! 🙂

I haven’t heard of Hunger is Scary but that sure is a fitting title. I try to give canned and boxed food to drives as often as able. I Also donate clothes we no longer use. Times are really tight for us right now with DH unable to work,etc but I always know there’s someone worse off. We were homeless once so I always am thankful for what we do had. A few weeks ago I gave an elderly fixed income neighbor half a lasagna because he couldn’t even remember the last time he didn’t eat a sandwich or a microwave meal for dinner. I wanted him to have some home cooked food.

I haven’t heard about Hunger Is Scary until recently. However, this sounds like a great cause and I am involved with a community/homeless kitchen that serves 3 meals a day. I am in charge of cooking eggs for breakfast : ). I also help create “food boxes” to give to a local shelter with members of my church.
