Stories About Hunger: Rosie's Banana

Like a lot of kids her age, Colorado ten-year-old Rosie Casey sometimes loses focus during class. Her teacher, Leslie Nichols, who is used to students occasionally daydreaming during lessons, taught Rosie an exercise to help her concentrate. Nichols told Rosie to write the word “focus” on a little sticker and look at it every time she felt her mind start to drift. Still, Rosie struggled to pay attention.

"I just really felt she wasn’t really applying herself in the classroom and I couldn’t figure out where that attitude was coming from," Nichols says.

The teacher later learned that when Rosie stared off into space for long periods, is wasn’t because she was thinking about cartoons, or her friends, or activities. She was thinking about food. Full story »

Washington, DC

Dear President Obama:

During your recent election campaign, you said that you would fight hunger and poverty in your second term. Thank you for promising to help people in need.

Now that you have been re-elected, I am asking you to keep your promise by working with Congress on a plan to end hunger.

I know that this will take a lot of work, but I also know that if you and Congress work together, people will not have to go hungry or wonder how they will feed themselves. I am counting on you to find a solution.

Thank you.
