Something As Simple As a Pack of Cheerios
This is a blister pack of Cheerios that they give out at elementary schools.
As simple and as common as this sort of thing seems to be, when you consider that, for far too many children in this country, this little pack of cereal is all that stands between them and going hungry for the better part of the day and it's the tangible aspect of cutting things like school breakfast programs in order to save money.
This is the image of what sustains people and matters. It's easy to discount the abstract idea of giving something away, but this is food, and food is important when people don't have enough of it.
