The issue of hunger

Have you ever been hungry, truly hungry, and not known when you’ll get food again?

Imagine being a mother or father who despairs of providing enough food for your children.

Imagine being a janitor or a teacher at a school and having children confide in you that when school is out, they don’t have enough food.

Imagine being on the staff of a lower-budget nonprofit, church, synagogue, or mosque and knowing that those people who are part of your community don’t have enough food. And yet, you need to do so much more with your budget than to feed people.

When we begin to know the names of the hungry, we can no longer think of hunger abstractly.

You can be part of the community response to feeding specific people with meals they need.
