Combating Hunger

by fritzg · 1 Comment ·

This weekend is the 28th Annual Hunger Walk in Louisville. This event raises thousands of dollars that go directly to feed people who are hungry here in Louisville and around the world. If you can’t walk, be sure to find a way to donate. Most likely your local place of worship is participating.


Another group that works to end hunger is Bread for the World. They seek justice for the world’s hungry people by lobbying our nation’s decision makers. This month’s action focuses on making sure our members of Congress do everything in their power to ensure that poverty-focused development assistance levels are set in the foreign assistance spending for 2007 and include at a minimum the $2 billion increase requested by the president. A letter to the editor that coincides with the Hunger Walk would be a great way to make your voice heard.
