We Pay For Hunger | Ed Nicholson

We Pay For Hunger | Ed Nicholson

I did not eat last Wednesday, along with thousands of others who care about hungry people in our country and around the world. It’s all part of the campaign, in which the nation’s most prominent anti-hunger/ anti-poverty organizations (including some of our partners- Share Our Strength, Feeding America,  FRAC, and The Congressional Hunger Center) are encouraging their stakeholders to fast to create awareness for the need for compassionate, sensitive, and reasonable debate over how budget cuts might affect the most vulnerable among us.

I consider myself a fiscal conservative. I’m acutely aligned with those who believe it’s absolutely imperative we get the federal deficit under control. But I also believe there are ways we can and should do it without making folks go hungry.

Even if you don’t believe in the essential humanitarian reasons for feeding people, consider the costs of hunger. If kids don’t eat, they don’t learn. If they don’t learn, they won’t live up to their potential in society. Sooner or later, we pay for that.

If people go hungry, they’re not healthy. Sooner or later, as a society, we pay for that.

In the words of Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, ”…hungry places are politically the most unstable parts of the planet.  Where you have hunger, you have governments that fail, you have terrorism, you have unemployed, dispossessed youth, you have chances of global conflicts…”    Sooner or later, we’ll pay if people go hungry.

So if you’re talking about pushing costs to your grandkids, consider the costs of making people go hungry. Sooner or later, someone will have to pay.   It’s not just wrong, it’s shortsighted.

I’ll skip some meals today if it means someone else won’t have to skip meals tomorrow.
