Sixty-five hours. 

I made it sixty-five hours before I broke my fast.  That’s about 2/3 of the 4 day fast I had committed to.  I don’t feel very good about ending early, but I am glad that I made the decision to join and all the people taking a stand for people that are too often ignored.

To those who supported my effort, without making me feel like some liberal lunatic, and

To those of you who decided to do something to help protect federal food and nutrition programs — and the people who rely on them; and

To those of you who took a donation to your community food bank or soup kitchen — thank you!

To everyone else, I hope that you at least understand why I, and people like me, have taken a radical step to raise awareness about the pervasiveness of food insecurity and risk of hunger in our nation. 

And now we return to our regularly scheduled programming . . .
