A noble & celebratory cause

In celebration of Eagan's 150 years, the city has set a goal of collecting 150,000 pounds of food this year for the needy families served by the Eagan Resource Center.

  1. It is a wonderful goal, Leif. I cannot imagine hungry families in our metropolitan areas, but it is an all too true and a tragic reality. These are hard times for many, many people!

  3. Good luck collecting foods. Poverty is usual connected with pre-christmas-time in Denmark, but at the moment there is a general discussion of the subject and it does not seem easy to make a strict definition of poverty.

  5. Very worthy. «Louis» hopes the goal is well-exceeded. No doubt, even in a small city like Eagan, the need is great.

  8. Leif, that's a lot of food. Causes are great, if meaningful. Providing the needed with food is an important one.

  9. That's a good goal! Notice, though, this is another post about food! Dost thou think you might have an "obsession"?

    And speaking of me getting on exercise equipment - the only exercise I've seen you doing in recent months was raising hand with spoon filled with food to mouth! Heh, heh!

  11. A good display, a good cause, and a good time to remember that so many pounds of food need to be collected because so many are doing without. A contrast with the previous post.
