A Little Plea for Large Appetites





Nutrition, Health, Disease, Crime, Class, Patronage

    Begins by noting how hard it is for those who gorge themselves at Christmas to appreciate the 'unpleasant feeling' of hunger. Proceeds to discuss an extract from a report demonstrating the low cost incurred by the committee of the Refuges for Homeless and Destitute Children in providing their impoverished charges with regular weekly dinners. Presents another extract illustrating the ways in which this provision can save children from fatal diseases and from crime, and concludes by urging readers to subscribe to this charity.
