Discussion Takeaways:

  • If you donate something, it is a gift. Don’t worry about how someone will use your donation because it isn’t your place.
  • Hunger can be tackled through creative collaboration.
  • Want to fight hunger? Go knock on a door, and ask if a person needs help.
  • It doesn’t take much to help people. Doing something small, like giving them a pot of soup, is important.
  • Donate food and other staple items with dignity.
