“I was thinking of something to write and realized the significance of something simple:

Beans.

They’re inexpensive, high nutritional value, easy to make and fill a hungry belly.

Now I realize that may seem a bit odd, but I’ve seen the damage and effects of ‘hungry’; the word means different things to me as I sit thinking about the thousands of times I’ve heard it within the community. Hungry can range from “gee I haven’t eaten, I’m getting hungry” to “Mrs. Rita, I have to do SOMETHING, you don’t understand, I can’t keep feeling hungry like this.” The second example from young men on the streets who really want more from life, but don’t have the mindset to do anything other than what they’ve been doing, have been taught, or talked into. Drug sales seem to be the answer most of the time.  It’s fast money, anyone of any age can do it, it’s easy to get and easy to sell. I’ve quit yelling about it, I’ve quit crying and worrying; I had to give it all to God.

This is a trap that young people whom I have loved fall into. They know this; they talk to me about the concerns, the problems, the fears. Though I’m not a biological mom to the youth, they are loved as though I was their only momma.

Did you know that there are hungry people from the very young to the elderly in the poorest parts of our cities (right here in America) in your “bad side…… of town”. Don’t think it’s not going on in your city. If you’re blessed enough to not live in the ‘bad side’ of town, then you have food in your belly, a roof over your head and are most likely pretty warm at night.

When I worked a food ministry, I had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people. The youth and I took food to the homes of the elderly and handicapped, sick and mentally hopeless. I would never trade those experiences for any amount of money in the world. The times these young men went into homes of people less fortunate than themselves changed their lives. The youth that went with me often understand something that other kids will never understand; it could be them if they don’t do something to change the outcome. That experience changed them, as well as myself. One thing that a large majority of the youth got out of it; they give back.

I knew an elderly lady in her 80’s who had no heat, no food, and only received $10.00 a month in food stamps. Who lives on $10.00 a month for food?!

What does that have to do with beans?!….

She ate cat food because it came in food boxes she received from local ministries; she felt it’s all she could do.

I have a better solution:    

Beans
If I had enough beans I could feed more people.

famine and poverty in his village by building a windmill from a picture in a library book.”
