I drive by.

And I look.

And my heart sinks.

It's really hard for me to look and see people who are in their cars, in long lines just waiting for a little assistance, and they are there because they don't feel as if they have an alternative and they look like they would like to be anywhere else but where they are.

And my heart sinks.

Yes, I realize that there are people who are hungry today, but there is also people who have been hungry for years and compound it with the hungry today, whew...Even before this COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis there were people who were in dire straits. But it seems like we never saw them until now. It seems like the hungry weren't out there for us to see like they are these days. And that's okay. But it's not okay. They are hungry.

No, it's not okay that they are hungry but it's okay that we know that they are hungry,

And it seems like these days that we see hungry people and that is way more prevalent than it used to be. I don't know if it is because we are more aware of it because of the Coronavirus pandemic or not. But the good thing is that people are getting fed.

According to the Greater Lansing Food Bank Facebook page, people are going to get fed once again with the Drive-Through Mobile Food Distribution, which is a program that is free that feeds the less fortunate.

In Lansing the next stop will be Saturday, September 19th. Registration will be at 7 a.m. and distribution will be from 9 until 11 a.m. or until the food is distributed at the Tabernacle of David at 2645 West Holmes Road in Lansing.
