Today is World Food Day in the U.S. and Canada. Here's how you can help right here at home.
Today might be an official day dedicated to ending hunger around the world, but as Rome wasn't built in a day, neither is the eradication of a global epidemic. The good news is, through the power of social media and the ease with which we can spread the word, contribute a donation or otherwise make a difference, the solution is closer than it's ever been before.
On our Milkshake Global site today, we're telling the story of World Food Day  and linking readers to the observance's official site, which connects visitors to more than a dozen stellar charities working to support the formation and sustainability of rural co-ops.  Here at Milkshake Kids, we're adding yet another resource into the mix: the nation's leading domestic hunger relief charity, Feeding America.  
The math is undeniable: every $1 donated provides eight meals to a family struggling with hunger.  Although we don't often link to direct donation sites, on a day like today, we couldn't ignore the simplicity of it all: for the cost of today's latte, we each could provide anywhere from 24 to 40 meals.  Even more staggering: a dollop of whipped cream to us might mean an entire day's food to a family in need.  Today of all days, that's a trade we're more than willing to make.
