  • The dictionary describes hunger as “the painful sensation or state  of weakness caused by need of food.” Some people become irritable, shaky, or disoriented if they are not fed at their usual mealtime. Others experience hunger as feeling lightheaded, empty, low, headachy, or hollow. At times a growling stomach prompts an eating episode. Some eat when they get depressed. Others lose their appetite when they get depressed. External stimuli are abundant, as are emotional and physical ones, yet few of these are hunger, just some other strain on your nervous system. In order to identify hunger, you must first understand what it is.  This is not as easy as it seems. Many of you may never have let yourself experience true hunger, only a feeling of discomfort. - Caryl Ehrlich

  • It is estimated that over 35 million people live in  food-deprived homes in the United States. If you’re a little down on your luck and are in need of a little help, local food banks are there to help: they provide food and other donations to those in need. Through donations, they provide thousands of Manhattan KS families with meals to keep their family fed. Manhattan KS food banks also provide food to soup kitchens, shelters, and other charitable organizations helping low- income individuals. Manhattan KS food banks provide not only food  but hope to millions of homes; hunger and poverty often go hand-in-hand. Typically, food charities accept all types of donations of food and non-perishable items to be distributed to needy homes. Manhattan KS food banks provide a great deal of assistance to poverty-stricken homes.
