Though we've been sharing a lot of information the past couple of days about how the government needs to continue to make an investment in ending hunger and poverty while they work out the U.S. budget, I thought I'd share some recent articles that have been passed around Heifer headquarters this week.
There has been a lot of added discussion
this week to the Let’s Move! Program set up by First Lady Michelle Obama to put healthy foods back into smaller communities.
So what will happen to all of the ‘bad’ food t
hat will still be out there? It could possibly be taxed. At least 30 cities have considered putting a tax on soda
or all sugar-sweetened beverages.

Share your comments with me below - I'd love to know what you have to think about all of the topics mentioned above. There is a lot going on in the world right now, but there is also a lot we can do to help.
