1 in 7 U.S. households don't know where their next meal is coming from. (Shocking, right?)

“Share the Love” is back! Leaving the Holiday Season of giving to those you love and those less fortunate does not need to stop. Together we can SPREAD THE CHEER THIS TIME OF YEAR!
Giving makes us all feel good, and the 2012 “Share the Love” program was a large success filling the shopping cart with non-perishable foods for the Laconia Area Food Pantry. With the winter season upon us, and the fresh load of snow dropped right after Christmas reminds us that it is important to keep our local community healthy through the season.
• When most people think about hunger, they think of a starving child in a third-world country. Or perhaps they think of a long line of homeless people waiting outside an inner-city soup kitchen.
• The truth is that hunger in United States is a huge problem. In a country known for its wealth and prosperity, 50 million Americans struggle to find their next meal.
• Did you know 17 million children go to bed hungry every night?
• The face of hunger has changed. No longer is it just the homeless man on the street reaching out for a helping hand, but millions of everyday people struggling to feed their families. No one is a stranger to the economic hardships of today.
Dr. Kennell and the Kennell Ortho Team are once again kicking off a non-perishable food drive program, when you bring in a non-perishable food item; you will be entered in the 2013 “Share the Love” prize drawing. 4 lucky winners will be announced on Wednesday March 27th!
