“Our own life has to be our message.” —Thich Nhat Hanh
Today is World Food Day 2018. It’s a day of action around the globe dedicated to tackling global hunger, which is on the rise. It’s a day to declare our collective commitment to eradicate worldwide hunger from our lifetime.
Fifteen years ago, I started volunteering at @deskct - New Haven’s Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen, and five years ago began a Supported Volunteer Program there. As a clinical psychologist, I collaborated with the area VA to volunteer alongside veterans living with mental illness. Each week, 8-10 veterans and I help run the weekly food pantry, serving food to the homeless and hungry. Teaching the value of volunteerism and having them experience the meaningful impact every individual can make in their community has been a great gift.
In this photograph, I had asked each veteran to write one word that described his feeling about the volunteer work we did to help end hunger in our community. These veteran’s answers: “Gratifying”, “Blessed”, “Humbled”.
Thank you @tdbank_us, Lewiston Rotary, Kids that Care, and East Auburn Baptist Church! They collected toiletries for guests at our Resource Center and spent Saturday making HUNDREDS of care packages! We are so, so grateful for your kindness!

The TOMA-Now team had an inspirational time supporting @stephs_ladles_of_love yesterday! The initiative supports the families of Freedom Farm in Belhar. We spent the morning surrounded by beaming happy faces - preparing, cooking and serving the community. We strongly encourage our followers to support Steph. Contact her directly to get involved.
PS: Thank's in advance #StephsLadlesOfLove for our GIANT wooden spoon X-mas present!
FORMULA MILK for children of Medan Tuanku (0 months - 6 years old)⠀
Formula Milk is distributed once a month for the families at Medan Tuanku. As milk is expensive, it would greatly help the burden of these families and the children will be better nourished. There is no minimum amount to contribute as every little contribution helps. We welcome monthly pledges or any other arrangements. We hope for your kind understanding when we post the plea when we need to.⠀
Items can be dropped off at Medan Tuanku itself (Lorong Medan Tuanku 2), or you can tell us your location, and we'll find out which team member is the closest to you to do drop off or pick-up.⠀
Alternatively, you can bank into:⠀
BANK ACCOUNT NO: 8008 651 300⠀
ACCOUNT NAME: Persatuan Memberi Kepada Yang Memerlukan⠀
EMAIL: email@example.com ⠀
Thank you everyone for your support and kindness. ⠀
My brother from another mother @nbkennedy4 got married to the love of his life @sresutek and I couldn’t be more stoked about it! The love, speeches, food, drinks, friends, family, and band were all phenomenal. I mean how can you not have a good time eating crab cakes, I love em. Cheers to you both! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness. #wedontrememberanythingremember#weddingszn#dancingqueens#loveisintheair#soupkitchen
No reading this rainy Monday night as it was my night at the soup kitchen. We are blessed to have a local wedding caterer donate their left-overs to us. Tonight it was Cajun meat & crawfish pies with rice and green beans. Yummy!!! How do you serve your community??? #servingthehungry#soupkitchen
World Homeless Awareness Day this year was such a great time. I spent the afternoon sitting down and getting to know the people who regularly go to @compassionsoupkitchen and the organisations around helping them. There is also a cheeky photo of me making a leather wallet.

Each meal nourishes hungry bodies and gives us an opportunity to share God’s love with guests who are hurting and homeless. And that’s something we can all be thankful for. Please give generously now… thank you and Happy Thanksgiving. #jsrm#asburypark#jerseyshore#thanksgiving#soupkitchen
