"Freedom from Want" - November Food Mover Newsletter


This Thanksgiving, I am particularly aware of how blessed we are, as Americans, to enjoy the Four Freedoms:

Freedom of Speech Freedom of Worship Freedom from Want Freedom from Fear

But do you know that we have 121,000 children here in the Greater Triangle who might be hungry this Thanksgiving?

They do not have "Freedom from Want" yet, but we can change that. Let's work together to make this every child's blessing.
