Simple gifts can help poverty lurking right in your own backyard. A recent report showed more and more college students are turning to food banks for meals and as many cities tighten their budgets meals on wheels type programs are being 86ed.

If you have extra food around the house consider giving it to an elderly neighbor or creating a care package for friends and relatives in college. If little things were done more often the ripples of change would be deafening.
