#HANGRY Is Ending Childhood Hunger in America


I first experienced the mod term “hangry” when I was 20 during our first family trip to Europe. I remember the moment, clear as day. I was wearing canary yellow linen pants with a white linen blouse. After hours of walking and meandering the streets of Paris, my dad ushered us toward La Sacré-Cœur. By then, lunch had surpassed and it was that critical time of the day when a simple snack would mitigate. I was hungry and let my dad know I needed something to eat. He insisted we visit the Church first and didn’t concede. I was so upset I opted out of going in. I missed an entire 90-minute visit to one of the most monumental infrastructures in Europe. And I still didn’t get to eat until dinner.

I was hangry.

It wasn’t until three or so yeas ago I did some research to understand if the concept was a real thing, and wouldn’t you know, it’s a very real thing for a woman prone to hanger. There is absolutely no irony I inherited that brain function from my dad — the same dad that awakened that very real other side of me.

I’ve learned how to temper my hanger now. I simply eat. I make preemptive moves and ensure I nosh on something, no matter how small proportioned,  to hold me over until a full meal is appropriate or convenient. It’s easy. And saves me a lot of anguish. And those around me… because to be around me when I’m hangry is to know when to excuse yourself from my presence.

But it’s not easy for 1 out of 6 kids in this country. Tempering their hanger isn’t even an option. These children are hungry. They wake up or go to bed hungry. Where you and I can emotionally check ourselves, these kids aren’t developed enough to deal with the implications hunger imparts. It’s unconscionable that, still, in America, we have a huge problem with food equality. That overnight stars and millionaires are born but our most important demographic is hungry. It’s an egregious concept I have a hard time wrapping my heart around.

And so I’m #Hangry.

Hangry for our children.

Hangry that we’re still fighting this fight. 

No Kid Hungry, one of my two passion charities, based right in my hometown, was brilliant in connecting the dots and inspiring all of America to get hangry for their cause in ending childhood hunger. A schoolbus donning caricatures of school aged children is currently touring the U.S., making stops in key cities where you can lend your support by creating a short video telling us why you’re Hangry. Your video will be used a voice to let everyone around you know that you care and that there’s something we can all do.

They invited me to tell Washington, D.C. all about it on a live segment a few weks ago.

Check it out the segment above.  

In conjunction, No Kid Hungry’s annual Dine Out campaign, which runs all of September, allows you to put your money where you mouth is. Over 15,000 participating restaurants around the nation are donating a portion of their proceeds to NKH during the Dine Out month. It’s a super easy way to help. We’re already dining out, right? Why not consider eating at any of the restos whose passion is fueled through the very thing these children need.

How can you help? Help us make #hangry trend on Wednesday, Sept 13th! We want 13 million more people to know that 13 millions hungry kids is too many, and we won’t stop working until that number is 0! Visit the Thunderclap page and show your support. 

For a full list of restaurants and to find ones in your city, visit their site. If you’re in the D.C., visit Ted’s Bulletin and for eery Ted’s tart you purchase, $.10 will go to ending hunger.

Thanks for sharing your strength through DINING OUT and staying HANGRY!



Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.

  1. Features of the emotional attitude of younger students are associated with their age-related development, changes in the social situation. During this period, the processes of arousal prevail over the processes of inhibition, which determines such characteristic features of younger students as restlessness and increased emotional excitability. It is important to diagnose a child’s condition in time. Intensive development of the emotional sphere affects the emotional worldview of the child: it forms the first bright emotional model of the world, experiences become meaningful, and their generalization occurs; develops arbitrariness and understanding of their own emotional state, there are more adequate emotional assessments of the environment.

  2. In this great pattern of things you actually get an A+ just for hard work. Where exactly you confused us ended up being on the details. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more correct in this article. Having said that, allow me say to you exactly what did deliver the results. The writing is incredibly convincing and this is most likely why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can notice the jumps in logic you make, I am not really certain of just how you appear to unite the points which in turn help to make the conclusion. For right now I shall subscribe to your point but hope in the future you link your dots better.

  3. Thanks for your publiction. Another thing is that being a photographer involves not only trouble in taking award-winning photographs but also hardships in establishing the best video camera suited to your needs and most especially hardships in maintaining the quality of your camera. That is very correct and evident for those photography fans that are straight into capturing the actual nature’s eye-catching scenes — the mountains, the actual forests, the actual wild or the seas. Going to these amazing places undoubtedly requires a digicam that can live up to the wild’s severe areas.

  5. Thanks for revealing your ideas. I might also like to state that video games have been ever before evolving. Modern technology and inventions have made it easier to create genuine and enjoyable games. These kind of entertainment video games were not actually sensible when the actual concept was first of all being tried. Just like other kinds of technological innovation, video games way too have had to evolve by way of many years. This itself is testimony towards fast progression of video games.

  6. Thanks for the ideas you have contributed here. Another thing I would like to talk about is that computer memory specifications generally rise along with other advancements in the technological innovation. For instance, any time new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there’s usually a related increase in the shape preferences of both the computer memory and hard drive space. This is because the software operated by simply these processors will inevitably increase in power to leverage the new engineering.

  7. One thing is that one of the most popular incentives for applying your credit cards is a cash-back or perhaps rebate provision. Generally, you’re going to get 1-5 back with various expenditures.

  9. Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I additionally believe is the fact that credit cards supplying a 0 rate of interest often bait consumers in with zero interest rate, instant acceptance and easy internet balance transfers, but beware of the top factor that will probably void your 0 easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and throw you out into the poor house in no time.

  10. One thing I have actually noticed is always that there are plenty of beliefs regarding the lenders intentions whenever talking about foreclosure. One myth in particular is the fact that the bank wants your house. Your banker wants your cash, not the home. They want the bucks they loaned you along with interest. Staying away from the bank will draw a new foreclosed summary. Thanks for your write-up.

  14. I have really noticed that credit restoration activity needs to be conducted with techniques. If not, you are going to find yourself endangering your position.

It is significant because by definitely not accomplishing this, all other measures that you will choose to use to improve your credit position will not be successful.
