Hunger Needs Action

It is September and most of us are looking forward to cooler temps and fall fun activities. Pumpkins and apple picking and all things fall, but did you know that it is also Hunger Action Month. 

During this month, I’m asking to do just that, take action.  


  • Give Food: Head to to find the list of food you can donate and find convenient drop off locations. 
  • Give Voice: Tell all of your social media friends that September is hunger action month and give a list of items to donate. 
  • Give Time: Plan to join Harvesters on Sept. 29 for the Community-Wide Volunteer Day.

These are some easy ways to help fight hunger. If you follow me on social media, you know (or maybe came to) my free yoga class.  Instead of paying for the class, all of the participants brought a items to donate. We collected a bag full of soup, pancake mix, potatoes, carrots, Mac and cheese and donated all of it at a drop off location near my house. It was so easy to take action for September and you can too! 



Eat, Drink and Feed Plenty!

I am so excited to be a partner with Harvesters this year.  Their mission to feed the hungry and the food insecure right here in KC is something close to my heart.  I can tell you first hand that I have seen those who are food insecure and how that affects their everyday lives, especially children. I can't think of a better way to help, than giving money to an organization that does so much for those in need of food.  From back snacks at schools, to food pantries to fresh fruit and veggies and soup kitchen, Harvesters does so much to make sure those who are food insecure have options. 

The Forks & Corks event is the best way to Eat, Drink and FEED PLENTY! A night of great food, drinks, music and people.  You will have a chance to eat sample food from some of the best chefs in the area, crafted cocktails and dance the nigh away - all with people who are all there to raise money for a great cause. 

I had a chance to go to the preview party and sample some of the vendors and you will not want to miss it! Use code: DISCOUNT20 to get tickets at  Hurry before they sell out! Because they do every year!
