This Single Mother Was Just Short on Her Grocery Bill. Hidden Cameras Caught Love In Action.

At the height of the Great Recession, one in eight Americans were on some form of assistance. Government-issued EBT cards (“food stamps”) were a common sight. So what would you do? ABC News’ What Would You Do? asked just that question when they staged a single mother unable to afford her grocery bill. Take it as a blessing that these neighbors know how to show love with a few small bills.

When supermarkets and eateries find themselves with extra food that can’t be sold, they usually just toss it into the dumpster out back. Every year, up to 15 billion pounds of food go to waste. But this exorbitant amount of leftover food could mean many less hungry days for hundreds of thousands of people.
You can help put an end to this terrible practice. Sign the petition asking the Chairman of the Food Industry Association to create incentives for America’s food service providers to donate their extra food to the 30 million Americans who go hungry every day. Sign here!
