Thanksgiving day in America is a time to give thanks. It is a time of family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie.

This year, while we give thanks for our own good fortune, please consider those who are less fortunate. As you sit down for the Thanksgiving feast, remember the millions of families around the world struggling to overcome hunger and poverty.

You can help the World Food Progam (WFP) bring life-saving food to millions of the world’s hungry. This year, WFP will feed approximately 90 million people — nearly 1 million affected by the cyclone in Myanmar, 3 million in Darfur, and millions more affected by the “silent tsunami” — the global food crisis that has pushed so many deeper into poverty.
