Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Quote of the Day: Carlos Bulosan

Adia_eating_an_egg"It is only when we have plenty to eat—plenty of everything— that we begin to understand what freedom means. To us, freedom is not an intangible thing. When we have enough to eat, then we are healthy enough to enjoy what we eat. Then we have the time and ability to read and think and discuss things. Then we are not merely living but also becoming a creative part of life. It is only then that we become a growing part of democracy."

—Carlos Bulosan, labor organizer and writer, in the essay "Freedom from Want."
